Food Safety training for selling online

HACCP Level 2
Onsite Workshop


If you sell food online, you must comply with the relevant food law, and you are responsible for the food information you provide to the buyer. The primary purpose of food law is to ensure that food available for a buyer is safe. It also requires food businesses to provide consumers with the mandatory information about food to make an informed choice at the time of purchase and must be available before the purchase is concluded. Food law prohibits the use of misleading information.

While the Level 2 Certification training session will ensure the Artisan Producer’s team are trained in Food Safety in accordance with FSAI guidelines, these workshop training sessions will be tailored to the Artisan Producers specific products and processes. Training is identified and provided in direct response to the individual needs of the business.

1. Hazard Identification:

HACCP is a systematic way of ensuring food safety by identifying hazards (microbiological, chemical, physical, and allergenic) that could potentially occur during food production.

2. Microbiological Criterion:

This is to establish the safety of a food or to verify that the food safety control system or elements are working as intended.

3. Traceability & Recall:

Traceability plays an important role in consumer safety through targeted recalls and withdrawals.

4. Labelling:

Regulation (EU) No. 1169/2011 establishes the general principles, requirements and responsibilities governing food information and in particular food labelling.

5. Food Fraud:

Is a fraudulent and intentional substitution, dilution or addition to a product or raw material, or misrepresentation of the product or material, for the purpose of financial gain, by increasing the apparent value of the product or reducing the cost of its production.

6. Product Specifications:

A finished product specification is the information sheet that documents all of the attributes and information regarding the finished product that is produced in the Artisan food business.

7. Supplier evaluation:

Artisan Producers will be provided with a supplier questionnaire template and directions on the completion of this document for potential buyers.

8. Discussion & Feedback:

A nice way to wrap up a training session is to get feedback while the trainee(s) are present, if of course the trainee (s) are comfortable with such a request.
