Updated foreign language food hygiene training materials now available

14 May 2019  |  Safety and Training
Seafish, the public body that supports the £10bn UK seafood industry, has released updated foreign language materials for its introductory level food hygiene taught course.

This short half-day course is ideal for a group of up to 15 trainees and can be taught in eight languages: English, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Welsh. The course can be delivered at a venue that is suitable for the business and trainees complete a 20 question multiple choice exam at the end of the course to achieve a nationally recognised and regulated qualification.

Lee Cooper, National Learning and Standards Manager at Seafish, said: “Successful food businesses invest in developing their people with regular learning and training and we update and develop our training materials to ensure the information we provide is in line with the latest requirements.

“Maintaining food hygiene standards is essential so we are pleased to be able to offer updated materials available for our food hygiene course in multiple languages. I would encourage any businesses interested in taking the opportunity to upskill their employees to get in touch.”

Michael Bates, a Seafish approved trainer and the Technical Manager at Seafood Ecosse Ltd, said: “You cannot measure the importance of providing training materials in foreign languages. It gives people access to a qualification that is necessary to fully understand the importance of the role they play in producing a safe, quality food. As our Industry adapts to changes in food safety and quality it is encouraging to see that the training materials are also reflecting those changes.”
