Worthing Pier Southern Pavilion 

HACCP Support and in-house Food Safety training     

Worthing Pier Southern Pavilion was a new food business opening up

Worthing Pier`s Southern Pavilion had recently refurbished and wanted some advice on how to achieve a 5 star food hygiene rating. We carried out regular food safety audits, helped to set up and implement a food safety management system and provided a report of our findings and an action plan of suggested improvements. Level 1 – 3 Awards in Food Safety were carried out in-house for front of house employees, chefs and supervisors

Richard Bradley, Director of Worthing Pier: “We found Ford Training through an internet search and from our initial conversation Dave knew exactly what we were looking for as a new restaurant business. Dave carried out a food hygiene audit, wrote a report with recommendations and priorities and re-visited our premises to discuss his report. We found it easy to follow and logical. Dave also carried out a three hour level 1 award in food safety training session, which the staff found really useful and interesting. We were inspected the following week by EHO and were awarded 5 stars for our food hygiene rating!”

New Food Businesses

 We have helped a variety of food businesses to set up. From registering the food business with the local authority to providing guidance regarding the design and construction requirements of a food premises, we can help.

Excellent course with an even more excellent tutor! The materials sent out were really informative, and sent as soon... as booked which was ideal if you want to print out in advance. The delivery of the class was excellent, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The course being remote made no difference to the level of learning, I was engaged throughout the entire course. The exam being done remotely was easy to set up and follow instructions, and Dave was extremely helpful and contactable when I had a few issues! MCA approved course too! Thank you again Axtell!read more

Dave Axtell is an experienced and knowledgeable tutor. The remote classroom session gave me the understanding and confidence I needed to pass the Food Safety L2 exam online. The course was personalised, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and go over course content again for clarification.
