Book Now



Course Overview

It is estimated that 1 in 10 people will suffer from food poisoning this year. This means millions of people in the UK will become sick due to the food that they eat. In many cases, outbreaks of food poisoning can be traced back to failures of management and a lack of supervision of people and processes.

When you consider that consumers spend £219 billion a year on food and drink, and that the sector employs nearly 4 million people, its no wonder food safety has never been higher on the public’s agenda.
The Food Safety Level 3 training course is ideal for supervisors and managers working in a catering environment with responsibility for food hygiene. This includes those working in restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, fast-food outlets, takeaways, mobile food trucks, kitchens, hospitals, schools and colleges.
