We are a specialist awarding body focused entirely on the food and drink industry. We pioneer innovative qualifications and endorsed programmes which drive skills and deliver results.
Our portfolio of learning focused, competence based and professional qualifications covers the food supply chain from agriculture to retail; manufacturing to hospitality and everything in between. This includes qualifications which can apply across all types of food business such as food management, team leading, food safety and food hygiene.
Our qualifications are designed for those already working in a food business, as well as those studying at college. The training linked to these qualifications varies greatly in length; courses range from one day to one or two years.
