Courses at Kitchen Tonic
When customers enter your food premesis they make an immediate opinion about the cleanliness of the place, staff and ambience amongst other things. Customers will also expect your staff to have been trained and have sound knowledge in food safety.
In today’s digital age word of mouth spreads quicker. Customers are more than ever likely to post bad as well as good comments on relevant websites, inform local authorities which can influence consumer choice. Good reviews can be great for business while bad reviews can mean a loss in business.
Food safety training is about better food handling, preparation and storage to prevent illness from biological, physical, chemical and allergenic hazards. It is also about upholding trust in your customers, enhancing your brand and maintaining a profitable business!
The best way to gain knowledge is to attend a fully accredited food hygiene course with a registered and experienced trainer who can guide learners and correct any pre conceived misconceptions, through in-house training or by attending any of our open to public food safety courses.
The "Food Hygiene" course was re-named and replaced by 'Food Safety' available in levels 1 to 4 in 2006 to accommodate new legislation (1).
New legislation recommends that training must be appropriate for the work you do. This was to accommodate content containing HACCP and the course being divided up into 4 occupational areas:-
If you work in the food industry you should be aware of your responsibilities in the provision of safe food for public consumption.
Studies show that your commitment to training will improve morale, improve productivity and reduce staff turnover, compensation claims and legal action. We can also help you set up your documentation.
If staff are not properly trained, the cost when something goes wrong will far exceed the cost of training.
Through our quality assurance training, we aim to help you to motivate your staff, increase your efficiency and boost your standards of food hygiene, reputation and long term success, as well as meet legal requirements.
Remember training is not just about sending staff on a course. Effective training has two stages: the provision of knowledge and the implementation of knowledge.
