How often should I renew my food hygiene certificate?

In the UK, it is considered best practice for organisations to ensure that their workers have up-to-date food hygiene knowledge, which can be demonstrated by taking an Online Food Safety & Hygiene Training courses on a regular basis.

At the very minimum, your staff should renew their food hygiene certificate every 3 years. However, it is highly advised that your food hygiene certificate is renewed yearly so that staff can be reminded of key aspects of food safety & hygiene that they may not remember in full detail, such as proper food handling and storage procedures.

Additionally, there are frequent changes in legislation regarding food safety & hygiene, which means that food handlers’ knowledge may be outdated if they haven’t completed training in a few years. They should have the most up-to-date knowledge in order for the organisation to comply with the current law and safely prepare food in their food premises.
