• Free eLearning Food Safety Course for Food Businesses

    Safefood launched safefood for business, a free e-learning food safety education tool for SME’s working in food production and catering. This includes SMEs working in food production, food processing, retail, catering and food services.

    Industry workshops previously hosted by safefood revealed that many staff working in small food businesses don’t have a high level of food safety knowledge. These businesses acknowledge that they struggle to prioritise food safety due to competitive pressures. With many food businesses now hiring new staff to deal with post-pandemic increases in demand, ‘safefood for business’ is ideally placed to help train these staff as part of their induction process and get them started in the basics of food safety.

    safefood for business’ covers eight key areas and has been designed in an easy-to-understand, multimedia format to engage the participants with interactive, online modules.  Based on safefood’s collective experience and the latest research available, the topics include:

    1. The importance of food safety
    2. Food microbiology
    3. Temperature control
    4. Personal hygiene
    5. Cleaning essentials
    6. Allergens in food
    7. Pest control
    8. HACCP
