Food Safety Introduction

In this course you will be given all the basic information you need to know about New Zealand’s food laws and the essentials to ensure you know how to provide safe and suitable food.

The course is based on a Power Point presentation that I have used successfully for a number of businesses located within my region (Nelson).

Now the course has been adapted for on-line use and it is my aim that it provides the same quality of information and understanding as I provide in my stand-up presentations.

The course reflects and supports the risk management focus on food safety as legally required in the Food Act 2014 and Food Regulations 2015.

My ethic is:

to provide food safety resources and training on a not-for-profit basis and whenever possible, free”

Everyone can be a Safe Food Handler!

Course Information

Estimated Time: You should be able to ease through this course in under a few hours but don’t rush – take your time!

Difficulty: For complete beginners

Lessons are short enough to do in small ‘bites’ and there are just five questions per lesson so a much more ‘user-friendly’ set-up with even better outcomes in regards to knowledge and commitment to food safety.
