Food Safety Level 2 - Off The Shelf Elearning Courses

There are more than half a million cases of food poisoning a year in the UK – just from known bugs, and in the most extreme cases, food poisoning can cause death. The store that sold contaminated food can be fined, taken to court or sued due to non-compliance.

How to hygienically store, prepare, cook and work with food to avoid contamination of food and food poisoning is crucial for everyone’s understanding of their responsibilities towards food safety. It is important that your staff know those practices in order to be compliant with the laws and regulations and to reduce the risks.

Sponge's Food Safety Elearning Course Level 2 is a follow-up of the notions provided in Food Safety Level 1 Elearning Course and generates an extended knowledge of food safety regulations as well as good habits when working with food.
