The Society of Food Hygiene & Technology (SOFHT) has launched a new on-site Training Academy, to cater for food manufacturing, processing companies and foodservice businesses who would like a number of people trained together, without them having to leave their site.
Run by some of the leading food hygiene and safety experts in the UK, SOFHT’s cost effective training packages run from one to five days, or can be developed around the needs of the individual business i.e. 1 day a week or evening sessions, and focus on the topical issues affecting everyone working in today’s fast-moving food industry. From meeting legal requirements, to cleaning, pest control, HACCP and training, there is a relevant course for most food manufacturing and foodservice operations.
Catherine Watkinson, Vice-Chair of SOFHT said:
“In a tough economic climate, training can often be compromised because it can be costly and impractical to have staff off site. In the food industry where hygiene is so important, reducing training is simply false economy as staff must be trained properly – from understanding their role to recognising problems and how to resolve them effectively with minimum impact on the business
“The SOFHT Training Academy has been designed to give those working in all areas of the food industry access to effective, competitively priced training, delivered by some of the leading experts in food safety and hygiene. We are delighted to offer the training programme ‘on-site’ to support businesses in achieving the highest levels of food safety”.
