6. Food Safety certification for pros and everyday cooks.  
one in eight canadians become sick

One in eight Canadians (or four million people) get sick due to food illness each year according to a recent report by The Public Health Agency of Canada. The risk of foodborne illness is significantly reduced when proper food safety procedures are in place. As a result, Canada’s food service operations including restaurants, grocery stores and central kitchens, train many of their employees through government approved food safety programs. In a recent survey of consumers, 76% said they would be more confident eating in a restaurant that displayed food safety training certificates in public areas.

Our approach can help you learn more about safe food handling practices

As a food service professional you have a responsibility to provide safe food. Our programs will help you learn how to do that. Government regulations describe the requirements for a food sanitation and hygiene training programs. We engage chefs, managers and staff about safe food handling practices to meet regulations and accreditation standards for certification. Our food safety courses are interactive and designed to help your team meet their responsibilities to provide safe food. (See testimonial below from training provided to HUMBER College Staff and Faculty)
