BSI Catering Food Safety Certification Training Course

This one-day course explains the BSI Catering Food Safety Certification, a unique global standard specifically developed by BSI to meet an industry need for catering operations. It fills the gap between traditional food safety standards (which often include requirements that don’t apply to catering organizations) and legal compliance (which doesn’t necessarily support or promote the regular practice of food safety).   

This course guides you through a common sense, risk-based approach of implementing a food safety system for your catering operation. It provides you with the tools to create a clear path towards achieving food safety certification for your organization.
