This course covers the full requirements to be a Food Safety Supervisor in the Retail industry. Our Food Safety Supervisor (Retail) course takes an in-depth look at what is essential to implement safe food handling and storage practices and a food safety program within a retail food environment. Content that is covered includes how to test for and correct any breaches in food safety, understand how to dispose of waste and contaminated goods safely, and maintain personal hygiene in a manner appropriate to the workplace. This includes knowing what to do, and what not to do, in the case of illness.

The Food Safety Supervisor (Retail) course applies to frontline service personnel involved in preparing, displaying and selling retail food. Most state governments require businesses operating with food to ensure they have a certified Food Safety Supervisor and food handling certificate. This course meets this requirement, providing you with the information you need to make sure your food business is compliant.

We are fully accredited by the government’s NSW Food Authority to issue the NSW Food Safety Supervisor Certificate. If you live in NSW, you will need to purchase this additional certificate.
