The law requires that all Food Handlers need to be trained according to their food handling work activities. Should an employee achieve a regulated qualification which is suitable for the work they are employed to do, it will assist Food Business Operators in proving that they have displayed “due diligence” and are therefore compliant in the eyes of the law. Without proper training, the employee and employer are breaking Food Safety Standards and can be prosecuted, they are also putting lives at risk.

For smaller companies or individuals alike we also provide “Open Courses” where you can book onto a course that may be running in your area, see our Open Courses page for more details.
