FDQ’s food safety and HACCP package is brilliant! It’s so flexible; saving us time and money whilst maintaining quality.
It is particularly useful in helping food businesses to demonstrate due diligence in ensuring their workforce is effectively trained in the safe use of knives to the required compliance standards.
This can lead to positive outcomes in a number of areas such as BRC Global compliance, reduction of incidents and increased levels of safety in the workplace.
These qualifications contain a range of optional units whereby the safe use of knives can be demonstrated and applied in different food industry processing contexts.
These qualifications are designed for learners who are either working in - or preparing to work in - food manufacturing or processing roles.

Jason Bennellick, of Prima Bakeries, Scorrier, has become the first bakery apprentice in England to successfully complete the L2 Craft Baker Apprenticeship, achieving a Merit grade.
The L2 Baker Standard contains three distinct routes, one of which is Craft Baker. This specialism was designed to revive traditional craft bakery skills, which the apprentice must prove in their bakery end-point assessment.
Supporting Jason in his apprenticeship learning and end-point assessment preparation were Truro and Penwith College. The college introduced the Baker Apprenticeship Standard in 2018, in recognition of the importance of the baking industry to the Cornish economy.
Baking Lecturer and course developer, David Williams, who himself has 40 years’ experience in craft bakery said he was ‘very proud’ of Jason’s achievement. He added,
‘It has been a pleasure to work alongside Prima to develop our Bakery Apprenticeship programme and deliver the skills needed in the workplace’
Prima’s Managing Director, Mark Norton, described the bakery apprenticeship as ‘exemplary’ and that Prima were keen to take on a new apprentice to help build the future of craft baking in Cornwall.Read more
