What is Food Hygiene?
Food hygiene is about one thing, preventing others from becoming unwell when they consume food. The 4Cs of food hygiene; cleaning, cooking, chilling and cross contamination make all the difference.
The Food Standards Agency state that anyone who may touch food, come into contact with surfaces where food is prepared; even those in the same room where food is being prepared, count as a food handler. All food handlers are at risk of contaminating food, especially the ones without any training.
What Are The Benefits of This Course?
There are plenty of benefits to undertaking this course, from your staff understanding how to effectively clean an area where food is stored, cooked and served through to knowing how to store food correctly. As with most things in the workplace, one thing can quickly lead to another. Not storing food correctly can lead to an infestation within your premises; something no one wants.
Among the benefits of protecting people, minimising staff sickness and infestations. This course also helps your staff achieve a higher food hygiene rating, or maintain the 5 star rating you currently own.
Who’s It For?

Training with the Leicestershire Training Team
Training is one of the most important aspects of anyone's working life, however it is commonly a source of boredom, resulting in a poor retainment of information. This is why we started thinking about training differently. For us, the training needs to be engaging as well as informative, so what you learn today, will be remembered tomorrow.
Training with us is a unique experience, with a potent mixture of fun, interactivity, real life experience and expert advice. We only use trained professionals, such as our nurse trainers, to deliver our training. This way you are taught by someone with real hands on experience.
