This City and Guilds accredited Level 2 Food Hygiene course is designed to allow every manufacturing business, regardless of size, to provide all staff with first class training at a fraction of the cost and disruption of attending a classroom based training course.

· Food safety hazards and contamination
· Food preservation, storage and temperature control
