This training pack is made up of two popular food safety courses, Food Allergy Awareness and Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering. The training is suitable for anyone working in a food handling role.
If you own, manage or work in a food related business, you will be affected and will need to ensure your operation is compliant with EU Food Information Regulation No. 1169/2011 (FIR) / Food Information for Consumers Regulation (FIC). These regulations affect all caterers and food service organisations, no matter how big or small, and require food businesses to provide allergy information on unpackaged and pre-packed foods.
As a business owner or food handler, you also have a duty to comply with the provisions of Regulation (EC) 852/2004 of the European Parliament on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, the Food Safety Act 1990, and Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2005. This requires Food Businesses to ensure that food handlers are supervised, instructed and trained in food hygiene and food safety in a way that is appropriate to the work they do and enables them to handle food safely and hygienically.
- An introduction to Food Safety and Hygiene - In this introduction learners will look at and learn how popular terms relate to food that has been prepared and served.
- The Effect of foodborne Illness - Looking at what foodborne illnesses are and how they may impact us from a personal and legal responsibility.
- Food Law - Food often has a long journey from growth and harvesting, through to delivery and preparation and finally through to being eaten. As a result there are many opportunities for it to become contaminated. In this section we look at legislation in place that relates to food hygiene and food safety.
- Hazards and Contamination - How food becomes contaminated, exploring food safety hazards and hygiene risks and how they arise or how they may be prevented and controlled.
- Food Preservation, Food Storage and Temperature Control - How to control contamination through safe temperatures and storage.

Learners will be able to download a digital certificate on completion of each course. This can be printed, and we suggest you keep it for your records. The certificate awarded on successful completion of the Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering course is City & Guilds accredited, and the Food Allergy Awareness training course has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.
If you have bought the posted certificate option, a high quality, seal embossed, certificate will be sent out on the next working day. This certification is universally recognised and can be used to provide evidence of food hygiene and safety training both internally and to external auditors. There is no set time for how long a certificate is valid for, but the accepted industry standard is for food hygiene certificates to be renewed every three years. However, some employers may require you to renew your certification more frequently than this.
