Food Safety – Level 2
Guaranteed food safety is the foundation on which every food serving establishment is based on. If that guarantee is non-existent, then we risk the lives of employees and consumers. It is imperative that we learn and practise proper food safety at all levels of the business.

We begin with refreshing your knowledge of contamination then delve into cross contamination, food poisoning and other food related illnesses.
