Food Safety Level 2

Food Safety Level 2 Course

There are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning yearly in the UK. The Food Standards Agency says that 'Food business operators are required by law, to ensure that food handlers receive appropriate supervision and instruction/training in food hygiene in line with their work activity and should enable them to handle food safely’.

Who Should Attend?

Food Safety Level 2 courses are designed for anyone who works with food. 


We use an audio and visual presentation, with handouts and practical activities that concludes with a multi-choice written assessment.


Our one day Food Safety Level 2 courses are held at our Training Centre in Retford, Nottinghamshire and can be used toward your CPD.
