Overview of course

EU legislation requires all businesses producing food to have a documented food safety management system in place, based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles.  Although effective in theory, HACCP has been particularly difficult to establish in catering businesses because of the sheer number and variety of processes involved in preparing and serving food. But practical, accessible and user-friendly management tools have been created, notably the Safer Food Better Business (SFBB) pack adopted by the Food Standards Agency, to help caterers comply with the new regulations.  This qualification examines HACCP and tools such as SFBB and is aimed at  business owners and managers of small and medium sized catering and hospitality businesses, such as: takeaways, sandwich shops, restaurants, pubs serving meals, guest houses, small hotels, not-for-profit organisations, health & social care providers preparing on-site meals and in-house caterers and staff restaurants.
