Food Safety

Who Needs This Qualification?

Anyone working in a catering, manufacturing or retail setting where food is prepared, cooked and handled

Every year thousands of people suffer from food-borne illness, usually as a result of eating or drinking contaminated or poisonous food. 

Many attacks go unreported and it is estimated that one person in fifty will be effected annually.  Some of these especially the very young, the elderly or the infirm will die. Therefore everyone who works with food has a special responsibility for safeguarding the health of consumers and ensuring that the food they serve or sell is perfectly safe to eat.

Typical  environments may include: pubs, hotels, restaurants,  supermarkets and retail environments, food and drink manufacturers, hospitals, care homes and schools
