FOOD SAFETY

We take food safety very seriously. To acquire a food hygiene certificate the following aspects have been covered:

  • The Effect of Food-Borne Illness - looking at what food-borne illnesses are and how they may impact us from a personal and legal responsibility.

  • Food Law - food often has a long journey from growth and harvesting, through to delivery and preparation and finally through to being eaten. As a result there are many opportunities for it to become contaminated. In this section we look at legislation in place that relates to food hygiene and food safety.

  • Hazards and Contamination - How food becomes contaminated, exploring food safety hazards and hygiene risks and how they arise or how they may be prevented and controlled.

  • Food Preservation, Food Storage and Temperature Control - How to control contamination through safe temperatures and storage

  • Personal Hygiene - this section looks at why personal hygiene is so important when working with food hygiene in catering. From hand washing, health, first aid, protective clothing and appearance.

  • Hygienic Premises and Equipment - this section looks at what part the premises and equipment design play in maintaining hygienic, pest-free conditions for food caterers.

  • Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) - it is a requirement of regulations that all businesses implement and maintain a documented Food Safety Management system based on HACCP. This section explains how to control food safety hazards at critical control points using a HACCP based Food Safety Management System.
