Taking the mystery out of food safety

Effective food hygiene control is critical to prevent contamination of food. Everyone involved in food production and preparation has a moral and legal duty to know about the principles and practices of food safety and hygiene. By training your staff to implement safe practices, policies and procedures your business will lower the likelihood of contamination, which in turn:

  • ensures compliance with legislation
  • contributes to a good reputation with clients
  • reduces the possibility of compensation claims and criminal prosecution against you.

We understand the requirements of the food industry and will be able to work with you whether you are a catering or manufacturing establishment, large or small. We will assist you to ensure that your business operates efficiently, cost effectively and legally by offering a range of high quality accredited and bespoke food safety and HACCP training and consultancy solutions, tailored to meet the needs of your business.

Experienced industry professionals and tutors deliver nationally accredited food safety training courses which are recognised by leading awarding bodies such as HABC and RSPH as well as bespoke training courses which are tailored to meet your business’ specific needs.

In order for training to be effective, it needs to be enjoyable as well as informative, hence we:

  • only use trainers who are well qualified and experienced in their fields
  • place great emphasis on the application of knowledge gained during the course when learners return to their work environment
  • use a wide variety of teaching resources to assist in the learning process
  • limit group numbers to ensure all trainees receive the attention and assistance they require in order for them to gain real benefit from their training.

We run a number of food safety and HACCP courses throughout the year within our training room based in Sunderland, which is easily accessible from all areas within the North East of England and is close to Newcastle and Durham. We also deliver training at our clients’ premises. Why not contact us to find our more?
