Course Description

Food Safety Matters has developed a series of simple short courses (2-3 hours each) on different food safety and hygiene topics. The courses are specifically designed to be presented in-house. All you need is a suitable person (a person from your own staff with food safety knowledge) to present the training, a projector or big screen and, of course, the wonderful training material designed by Food Safety Matters.

 Each training pack contains a learner workbook which explains food safety and hygiene principles in very simple English with fun exercises to entrench important concepts and habits. Also included are a short knowledge test and a certificate of completion for each learner. In addition, each course is accompanied by a beautifully designed PowerPoint presentation packed with images, video clips and real life examples. The PowerPoint presentation can also be provided in video format with a voice-over.
