Food Hygiene Training



Food handling safety, hygiene, storage and preparation are amongst the topics on this course which exceeds the requirement for all care staff to have a basic understanding of food safety.


UK law requires that care staff working within a care setting are trained in food safety and food hygiene – whether or not they are employed specifically as kitchen staff. This also applies to domiciliary care workers caring for people in their own homes.

Food hygiene is of the utmost importance when working with vulnerable services users in a care setting. The consequences of poor food hygiene can spread quickly in a residential environment, whilst in a domiciliary setting frail clients may neglect even basic good practice. We are proud to offer one of the most thorough and engaging food safety training courses available to the care sector.

Extensively covering best practice, personal and procedural hygiene, this legally compliant course is aimed at both new and experienced care staff and stresses the importance of individual professionalism and accountability when operating in a food context within a care environment.
