Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Manufacturing


The food business operator in any type of food business has a legal obligation to ensure that staff are supervised and instructed and/or trained in food hygiene matters to a level necessary for the type of activity they are carrying out. The most effective way of complying with this legal requirement is to obtain an appropriate, accredited qualification in food safety and ensure the knowledge gained is implemented in the workplace. Our Level 2 qualifications in food safety help organisations to comply with this requirement.


Food handlers achieving this accredited qualification will have the necessary information to ensure food safety in any size or type of food manufacturing environment.

The qualification is designed for people who work, or intend to work in food or drink production. In addition to the fundamentals of food safety, candidates will gain an appreciation of the specific types of hazards, controls and monitoring associated with food manufacture.

This qualification has been designed to address the differences between catering and manufacturing environments, and will ensure staff are compliant with the requirement for businesses to train food handlers to levels commensurate with their work activities.

This Ofqual-approved qualification has been developed specifically for insertion onto the Qualifications and Credit Framework, with full support from Improve, the Sector Skills Council for the food and drink manufacturing industry in the UK. It is therefore fully compliant with industry and regulatory standards, as well as being recognised by environmental health practitioners, auditors and third-party customers who require the manufacturer to demonstrate that they have trained staff to a recognised level.

This qualification is achieved by taking a one-day classroom-based course. It is assessed by a multiple-choice examination, where the candidates must answer at least 20 out of 30 questions correctly. The examination will take a maximum of 1 hour to complete.

Open courses are inclusive of tuition, examination fees and a course handbook. Free follow up support will also be available from your tutor.


There are no prerequisites for this qualification, however it is recommended that learners have a minimum of a level 1 or above in English and Mathematics.
