Course description

Level 1 Food Safety - Retail


If food is not handled safely by food handlers, it can be the main source of contamination. It can result in serious illnesses for the consumer. The Level 1 Food Safety – Retail is an informative guide on basic food hygiene and safety practices for anyone working with food in the retail industry. Learn the importance of keeping food safe when handling and storing food. If you work in a typical retail environment like the mall, supermarket, retail store or restaurant, you must learn that maintaining high standards in food safety is critical for both the consumer and business. It is costly to make mistakes, particularly in the food retail industry. Remember, your reputation is on the line and can be damaged by simple word of mouth if a consumer falls ill due to unsafe practices. Protect the reputation and profits of your food retail business by taking on the legal duty to manage food safely.

You will acquire in-depth knowledge through key modules in Level 1 Food Safety – Retail that will give you practical knowledge of the dangers of poor food safety standards, how food risks can arise and how to prevent contamination. Food handlers will learn to manage food safely and ensure food is cooked, prepared and served for consumption within the food safety guidelines. The course will give you greater awareness of contaminated food and how it can lead to serious fatalities.

The Level 1 Food Safety – Retail course will ensure your business complies with the UK law and food safety standards to manage food safety risks effectively.
