Food hygiene training and information for businesses

Food hygiene information

Visit the Food Standards Agency (FSA) for:

  • Information about what you need to do to produce safe food.
  • The laws, regulations, codes of practice and guidance that apply to the production, processing, distribution, retail, packaging and labelling of food stuffs.
  • A series of short food safety videos showing you how to keep food safe.

Safer food better business packs and diary refills

The FSA runs the Safer Food, Better Business (SFBB) scheme to help small businesses with food safety management procedures and food hygiene regulations. The website includes downloadable SFBB packs, individual pages and monthly diary refills designed to meet the specific needs of different food businesses.

Food industry guides to good hygiene practice for various types of business are available on the Food Standards Agency’s website.

Food hygiene training

At present we are not offering food hygiene training, but when considered safe to do so we will resume running the following Chartered Institute of Environmental Health training for anyone who needs to know about food hygiene:

  • Foundation food hygiene 1 day course providing basic skills for food handlers.
  • Intermediate food hygiene 3 day course for supervisors and managers.

Both courses are followed by an exam.

We will update this information when we resume offering the above training courses with the dates and times the courses will run and will confirm your place once we receive your payment. You have 7 days from the date of payment to cancel and receive a refund. If you book a course, but then can’t attend, we will try to fit you onto a future course.
