Level 2 and 3 Food Hygiene Training Package
This Level 2 & 3 Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate course satisfies a food handler’s legal obligation to undertake appropriate food safety training and include relevant material for managers and supervisors to supplement this. A sound knowledge of the latest food safety principles will also improve the quality of your product or service whether you’re a self-employed caterer, a chef, a waiter, or any other role within the catering industry.
When working in catering or hospitality, you need to have a high standard of food safety and hygiene training in order to fulfil your role and protect both consumers and other staff members.
Undertaking both Level 2 and Level 3 Food Safety & Hygiene training means you have covered a comprehensive level of training which includes modules on cleaning and disinfecting equipment, safe food preparation and storage, and common pest control, as well as management-specific areas to make sure you’re complying with all of the relevant health and safety standards.
This City & Guilds accredited Level 2 & 3 Food Hygiene course is designed to provide an individual or an organisation with the very latest food safety and hygiene training.
Alongside information dedicated to explaining the basics of food hygiene, it contains lessons dedicated to:
Food safety hazards and contamination
· Food preservation, storage and temperature control
· The legislation that governs food handling
· Hazards Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)
· How to assess potential risks in the workplace
· What to do when responding to accident at work
The material is provided in an interactive format that is designed to be engaging and accessible.
A basic knowledge of food hygiene will mean learners progress quickly, but the course is designed for anyone working in the service or hospitality sectors and should be suitable for any staff member to give them the knowledge needed to work effectively and safely.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
