Food and drink are handled in a wide range of preparation and manufacturing processes. This includes drink prepared for sale in supermarkets and shops, as well as for wholesalers and caterers. It is important to understand why food safety and hygiene is important, so that manufacturers can remove potential harm to anyone consuming it, to comply with the law, and to prevent any damage to your business reputation.
Why take this Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Drinks Manufacturers course?
As a drinks manufacturer, it is crucial to ensure that you or your staff are trained in food safety and hygiene. Effective training lowers the possibility of contamination or harm from micro bacterial substances, reduces the risk of foodborne illnesses after consumption, and helps drink manufacturing staff to maintain a high standard of hygiene for the premises.
Upon completion of this training material, your learners will have a basic understanding of food hygiene and safety and how to apply these practices to their work. Learners will understand food law, who food law is enforced by, and the responsibilities of staff and food and drink businesses to ensure appropriate food safety practices are in place for employees. Learners will understand how contamination occurs and how it may be prevented, they will know the seven principles of a HACCP procedure, and understand preservation storage and how to control drinks at different temperatures.

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.
