Home based food business guide


People involved in food handling must be trained to an appropriate level for the task they are doing.

As a brief summary, those working alone or supervising others should be able to demonstrate a knowledge of basic food hygiene, including temperature control requirements, why personal hygiene is important and how to store and handle food safely.

Level 2 Food Hygiene in Catering Courses are available and run by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health.
