This course provides a grounding in basic principles of food safety. It is designed for those working in a catering environment who are not directly involved in the preparation or handling of high-risk foods, but work in an environment where food is handled elsewhere or only deal with low-risk foods. It is therefore ideal for those working with pre-packaged or wrapped food.
