Food Safety/HACCP News
It is soon to become a legal duty to display “scores-on-the-doors” rating in all food premises in Wales. Improve your rating by having a HACCP plan in place (no HACCP plan, no rating or low rating). Contact us now to see how we can deliver HACCP training to suit your needs (we are one of only a few training companys who can deliver HACCP training at levels 2 , 3 and 4). We were also involved in the development of SFBB (Safer Food Beter Business).

For anyone thinking about going on the food safety course, I’d definitely say go for it. It’s definitely worth it, especially if you’re hoping to go into anything in catering. The instructor was absolutely brilliant, and it was a really manageable way of learning. . –Samantha – Gingerbread
MB Training have delivered training here for many years. Our staff feel comfortable with the trainer who is experienced in adult learning techniques. MB Training offer a range of well established courses and we have appreciated the integrity of the trainer and the ability of the trainer to shape the courses to apply specifically to our production needs ie making it more bespoke, whilst at the same time, maintaining externally benchmarked standards. – Dr Alison J Simmons, Compliance training process officer Glaxo Smith Kline
Mike delivered a Level 4 Food Safety for Manufacturing course to our Technical and Production team over the period of one week. His presentation of the information and the structure of the training sessions was such that we managed to pack a great deal into each day leaving us time to digest and reflect on the information as well as consider the exam which was looming at the end of the week!! Everyone who attended the course enjoyed the sessions and the manner in which Mike engaged with his audience. I would certainly use MB Training again for this type of activity in the future. –Richard Mynott, Executive General Manager, Brace’s Bakery Limited
