There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning in the UK each year with Campylobacter being considered as responsible for more than half of those, in turn leading to more than 100 deaths a year.

 

 

Since the pandemic, more and more people are hosting events at home as opposed to eating out. Many see themselves as the next Masterchef! Food Safety also applies to households, not just businesses. You want those who have enjoyed your hospitality to go home with memories of a good time, not a tummy bug to remember you by. You MUST ensure that food is stored and cooked safely.

Having a good understanding of food safety practices is essential in protecting the health of both consumers and food handlers. Remember to keep raw meat separate from cooked meat and ready-to-eat foods like salads. Cross-contamination is most likely to happen when raw food touches or drips onto ready-to-eat food, utensils or surfaces.

We offer various Food Safety courses including the basic Food Safety Awareness course which is aimed at anyone who requires induction training before starting to work with food, staff who are low-risk food handlers, and those who wish to update their food safety knowledge. We also offer 4 E-Learning courses: Food Safety Awareness at Levels 1 & 2, Introduction to HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) Level 2 and Allergen Awareness. For those of you wanting a full understanding of Food Safety, we also offer the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering.

Our Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering (QCF) course is accredited by Qualsafe Awards, one of the largest Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisations in the UK, and is aimed at those working, or planning to work, in the food and catering industry. Over this one day course, through a variety of training methods, participants will gain a strong understanding of the importance of food safety, including correct food handling practices and measures to reduce the risk of contamination.

If you choose to eat out or order in catering for an event, the Scores on the Doors website lists all venues that have a food hygiene rating score from 0 (urgent improvement necessary) to 5 (very good).
