Basic Food Hygiene Level 2

Our basic food hygiene course gives an introduction and basic understanding of food hygiene and is an essential starter course for people who wish to work in the manufacture, preparation and serving of food and food products.

Only three sections long, this course is quite quick to complete and at the end of it, you’ll come away with a basic food hygiene certificate, too.

It is a requirement of food businesses to make sure that any staff who handle food are supervised, instructed and trained in Food Hygiene in a way that is appropriate to the work they do.

The Food Hygiene and Safety Level 2 Course supplies this qualification.


This course will benefit anyone working in retail, for example, supermarkets, small and large grocery stores, butchery, bakery, fish and farm shops, market stalls and delicatessens. It provides a basic understanding of food safety and hygiene as it relates to the retail sector, covering issues such as displays for sale and hot display units, food hygiene, food hazards, food poisoning, how food becomes unsafe, personal hygiene, awareness of contamination, time and temperature factors, proper cleaning and sanitizing, premises and equipment and food handling responsibilities.

Courses are run from our Hessle Road training centre.
