Level 2 Food Safety – Retail

Started on February 26, 2020

Food Safety level 2 certification is a legal requirement for those who handle food for public consumption which includes the production, preparations and the sale of food and drink in the UK. This Level 2 Food Safety -- Retail is a thorough induction to food standards, hygiene and safety and meets the requirements set down the Food Hygiene (England) Regulations, 2005 and the provisions of regulations 852/2004 of the European Parliament on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, Food Safety Act 1990 (full information below). These laws state that food handlers must ensure that food which is prepared, cooked, served or sold, is safe for human consumption and undergo the necessary training and supervision.

The course covers the required food safety legislation, hazards involved in the delivery and service of food and the elements involved on how to control identified risks with food safety. Failing to follow food safety standards can cause food to become contaminated with potentially fatal consequences. Training, for you and your employees, with our online system will enable you to give everyone a greater awareness of the dangers that poor food safety standards pose as well as meeting your statutory training requirement on food hygiene.

Courses are CPD and RoSPA accredited and we offer sector specific accreditation awards in the catering, manufacturing and retail sectors. Typical environments where the award is a requirement for staff who handle, prepare or produce food and drink include:
