Food Hygiene training

Food hygiene is not just about cleanliness. It refers to a number of things that you can do to stop harmful bacteria getting into food. The main reasons for food poisoning are lack of knowledge, poor food management and bad hygiene practice.

By developing food hygiene measures and increasing our knowledge of proper food handling the risk of food poisoning can be greatly reduced.
