I’m a sole trader. Do I still need Food Hygiene Training?
Regardless of the size of your business, if you handle or prepare food that is consumed by others then you need to comply with the Food Hygiene Legislation.
What training do I need to provide for my employees?
The Law requires that any food handlers are instructed and supervised to a level which is appropriate for their duties.
A supervisor will need a higher level of training than the staff they manage for example. Although the law does stipulate that formal training is required, a certificate showing your employees and supervisors has passed a recognised course is one way of showing you have complied with the law.
