Everyone who works with food has a responsibility to ensure that the food they serve or sell is safe to eat. Our Environmental Health Officers highly recommend that candidates retake the course every three years to ensure knowledge and skills are kept up-to-date and to take account of any changes in legislation and practice.
This qualification is aimed at food handlers and other staff involved in food preparation and service who work within the catering industry. The objective of the qualification is to support a role in the workplace. It is designed to provide knowledge and understanding of food allergens and foods commonly causing intolerances, their characteristics and effects, the importance of effectively communicating information regarding allergenic ingredients to customers, and how staff can minimise the risk of cross-contamination from allergenic ingredients.
We also offer this course as a bespoke group booking in your setting with a date to suit you (for a minimum of 8 delegates).
