Food handling

Encouraging people to sign up for the Breakfast Bite webinar, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said: “This webinar will demonstrate how FSAI resources can be used to ensure your team is well-trained. The training of food handlers is one of the key ways food businesses can ensure that the food they produce is safe to eat. A food handler is any person who handles or prepares food whether it is unwrapped or packaged, even if physical contact is only a small part of their work. Food handlers must be supervised, as well as instructed and/or trained in food hygiene, based on the level of activity they are involved in. We would encourage business owners, managers, chefs, caterers and workers who come into contact with food in the course of their work to attend this short webinar which will cover everything they need to know.”
