A food safety course is a valuable asset for anybody who is looking to broaden their skill set and increase their employability. Finding the right food safety course for your specific situation is where the challenge lies, as there are many varied courses, all of which specialise in a different topic.
At the moment, we offer three different courses available for you to explore. There is the Food Safety Catering course, the Food Safety Retail course, and the Food Safety Manufacturing course. Which one is the best choice for you?
Food Safety Catering
To begin with, let’s take a look at Food Safety Catering. This course is all about providing you with the resources and knowledge required to thrive in a catering environment. Food safety is a vital component of catering, as you will need to be able to prepare food according to an acceptable standard while prioritising deadlines and managing workloads.
You will learn about all of the vital aspects of food safety, being able to safely handle all the tools required for food preparation, as well as working with higher risk foods, like, for example, raw meat.

Food Safety Retail
The second course that we offer is the Food Safety Retail course. This course will teach you how to safely handle and prepare food for retail, whether this is working behind the counter of the butchers or handling fresh fruit and vegetables.
When you are working in retail, there are many customers who are going to come into the store on a regular basis and interact with the product. This means that you have to be able to safely handle things, identify potential hazards like cross contamination, and also be able to safely prepare and deliver food to customers.

Food Safety Manufacturing
If you are someone who is thinking about a career in cooking, preparing, packaging, or interacting with food for a manufacturing company, then the Food Safety Manufacturing course is the best one for you.
The factory floor is a busy environment, and you will need to be able to respond quickly to challenges and work well under pressure. This qualification will arm you with the knowledge required to do this with more confidence, as well as teach you about how to safely cook, prepare, and pack food to be delivered to retail providers.

In conclusion, you can see that there are a variety of food safety courses for you to experience. We offer both introductory and advanced courses to make sure that you have the best knowledge base possible, and new courses are frequently added. During this period of economic uncertainty and lockdown, it is quite sensible to further your own knowledge base independently, as this will help to increase the chances of you being noticed by an employer. Alternatively, these courses are a good idea for anybody who is attempting to prove that they are worthy of being kept in a period where many industries and companies may have to consider downsizing.
