Level 2 Food Safety for Manufacturing:

The rigorous enforcement of food safety law is important but on its own is not sufficient to prevent food poisoning normally caused through negligence or ignorance. To reduce this a high level of food hygiene the education of food handlers receive must be achieved.
Level 2 Food Safety for Manufacturing is specifically for those working in Food Manufacturing. We also deliver the Food Safety for Catering and the Food Safety for Retail both at Level 2.
This Level 2 Food Safety for Manufacturing course will be an advantage to anyone working in the food and drink manufacturing/processing industry.
