Food Hygiene Awareness

Food Hygiene Awareness – Overview

The Food Hygiene Awareness course is designed to ensure that all staff who handle food are fully up to date with regard to the organisation’s and their own food hygiene responsibilities.

This course will enable learners to prepare food safely and maintain correct food hygiene practices at home and at work. It is designed to introduce the candidate to the arena of food hygiene.

Candidates often choose to complete this course prior to enrolling on one of our other 2 courses, the FAA Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering, or FAA Level 2 Award in Good Nutrition.
