Starting a food business does seem like a lucrative sector to invest in, and in most cases, it indeed is thriving. However, what others don’t see from the outside is the complexity that the whole process includes. Before setting up your food business, you surely need to be aware of several factors and among which ensuring food hygiene and safety should be among your top priorities. And especially in this pandemic situation, hygiene is a must!

In the UK, there are strict laws for maintaining food safety in all premises. The law imposes strict punishment and fines in case of any deviation in food hygiene and safety. So, the best way to prepare yourself to tackle such situations is to equip yourself with adequate knowledge in this field. And not only any theoretical knowledge, but you also need to be able to implement it within your production system productively.

You may face a variety of contaminants on your premises, and what counts is the way how you handle them to ensure maximum safety. You would surely not want to put the lives of your consumers at risk. Thus, you would need to create a sustainable FSMS in your business. It is only possible if you and your team have the necessary training.

Our Certificate Level 1 in Food Hygiene and Safety course is designed to assist you with a systematic progression in reaching your goals. By highlighting the importance of hygiene in a food business, we gradually move on the acceptable hygiene practices and creating a sound FSMS system. Thus, your team will be able to follow all the regulations, and you can be assured that your food business will run smoothly.
