Why Do I Need This Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate 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 not only handle food but are also involved in its preparation. Listed below are some examples of professions and industry sectors where this training would be required:
- Food Manufacturing
- Schools & Hospitals
- Coffee Shop Staff
- Kitchen Cooking Staff
- Hospitality Staff
Please note: If you are ONLY involved in handling food that has already been prepared, you need to complete the food hygiene certificate level 1 course. If you handle and prepare food (which includes manufacturing), this is the training to complete.
