The European Parliament Hygiene of Foodstuffs Regulation (EC) No. 852/2004, Annex II, Chapter XII states that “food business operators are to ensure that food handlers are supervised and instructed and/or trained in Food Hygiene matters commensurate with their work activity”.

The ‘Food Hygiene & Safety’ course is designed for food handlers who require knowledge of food safety principles in a food manufacturing environment. Having acquired this knowledge, food handlers will be better equipped to deliver a safe product to consumers on a continuous basis.

On completion of the course, delegate’s knowledge will be assessed via a multiple choice exam (optional).
