Course Description

Good food hygiene is essential to enable you to make, sell or serve food that is safe to eat. So even though there may not be a specific legal requirement behind each section of this course, it is still very important for you and your staff to understand what good food hygiene is and to follow the advice given on the training course.

Older adults are particularly susceptible to food poisoning because as you get older, your immune system does not respond as quickly or effectively to defend against infectious organisms as when you were younger. In addition, many nursing home residents already have weakened immune systems due to age, illness, and disease, and their bodies cannot handle the added onslaught caused by food poisoning.

Good food hygiene helps you to: obey the law. Reduce the risk of food poisoning among your clients. Protect your business’s reputation.
