Our food hygiene certificate Level 1 course provides the right amount of information to ensure that the basic principles of food hygiene and safety are understood.

This food safety course is ideal for those new to handling food whether there’re working in manufacturing, catering or retail.  This course has the necessary approvals (see below) ensuring the highest standards and regulatory compliance.

Why Do I Need This Food Hygiene Certificate Level 1 Training?

If you work in the three main areas (catering, manufacturing, or retail) where food is prepared, made or sold then you must have an understanding of food hygiene and safety principles.  This course is specifically for those who ONLY handle food and are NOT involved in its preparation or manufacturing.  Examples of workers falling into this category could include:

  • Supermarket Workers;
  • Waiters and Waitresses;
  • Kitchen Porters;
  • Pub & Bar Staff;
  • Coffee Shop Staff;
  • Front of House Employees;
  • Warehouse & Delivery Drivers.

Please note: If you handle and prepare food, this is not the course for you, and you should complete the Level 2 food hygiene and safety course.
