As a business owner, manager or supervisor you should already know that health and safety and food safety training are mandatory.

Did you also know that within the EU (which we are still members of for at least a year or two) there are many companies who will not trade with any food producer or retailer that doesn’t employ HACCP based food safety management systems?

HACCP stands for Hazards Analysis Critical Control Points and it is a preventative system that maximises food hygiene and diminishes risks.

If this has come as a surprise to you then please contact a reputable food safety training firm like the London based Food Alert.

They offer courses for employees and further training at supervisory and management levels so that everyone working in food preparation, manufacturing and retailing can work within a structured framework that adheres to UK and EU legislation.

As an additional bonus, it has a positive effect on your food hygiene ratings score when you use food safety management systems and an HACCP plan.

You’ll be happy, the food safety auditor will be delighted and you shouldn’t poison any customers, which is obviously key to survival.

HACCP training is vital for running a safe and effective business in the food industry.

If you are in any doubt about what the regulations attached to food hygiene, food preparation, manufacture and health and safety are and how to use HACCP food safety management systems then these courses will enhance your knowledge so that you can apply the principles in your workplace.
