Food poisoning often happens because of a lack of awareness and poor food hygiene.  This is why, by law, everyone who handles food must receive training and/or supervision in food hygiene, specifically appropriate to the job they do.

The distance learning Food Hygiene course has been written for everyone who is involved in any industry associated with food preparation.  It aims to give all staff, supervisors and managers the essential knowledge needed to offer the very best professional approach to Food Hygiene.

As most food poisoning cases are caused by simple mistakes and lack of awareness, training is universally recognised for its vital role in improving standards of food hygiene and meeting your customers’ demands for safer food.  By UK law all food handlers are now required to receive instruction/supervision and or appropriate training in food hygiene, so there has never been a better time to act.
