Ryedale District Council offers food safety and hygiene training for free

Ryedale District Council is offering just under 400 free food safety and hygiene training courses to get level 2 licences for catering businesses in the district.

The training course helps anyone who handles, prepares or serves food in the catering industry understand their legal responsibilities. Plus find out what constitutes best practice in regards to controlling food safety hazards, controlling temperatures, food storage, food preparation, personal hygiene and premises cleaning.

Phillip Spurr, Programme Director of Place and Resources for Ryedale District Council said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the catering sector with a huge turnover in staff.

“With the festive holidays just around the corner, this is a great opportunity for catering businesses to have their food safety and hygiene training all done and their knowledge refreshed. When our teams carry out their routine food safety inspections, they’ll be keen to see that businesses have completed the training with the certificates printed out and displayed and on the wall.”

Businesses interested in taking the course to get their licence can email stating the name of their business and the full names of the people they want to undertake the course.  They will then be sent the login credentials.
