Food businesses are placed under a legal obligation to provide food hygiene training for their staff to a level ‘commensurate to their work activities’.

In practice, this means that food handlers working in a variety of catering or retail outlets must be trained to level 2 in food safety/hygiene. Level 2 food safety training is the equivalent of the old basic food hygiene certificate.

Highfield’s Food Safety Level 2 training course is ideal for food handlers who work in a catering environment, including restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, fast-food outlets, takeaways, mobile food trucks, kitchens, hospitals, schools and colleges.
