Evidence underpinning this approach

Everyone who works with food has a special responsibility for safeguarding the health of consumers and ensure that the food they serve or sell is perfectly safe to eat. The CIEH enables trainers and centres to offer comprehensive CIEH food safety training efficiently and effectively from 'farm to fork'. Whether food is being produced, prepared, cooked, served, stored or distributed, the CIEH has developed food safety training to suit employees in all types of food businesses.
