Anyone who works in catering or hospitality needs to be aware of the latest food hygiene standards. Knowing how to clean and disinfect equipment, safely store and prepare food, and control common pests will allow you to handle food safely and ensure that you’re complying with all of the relevant health and safety standards.
HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points and is all about ensuring that food safety workers can prevent and control food-borne illnesses, and stop consumers from being exposed to hazardous contamination from their premises.
Using the HACCP system became a legal requirement in food safety management from January 1st 2006. It helps food businesses to safeguard their customers from illness or injury due to the consumption of unsafe food.

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.
