At Highfield, we’re committed to raising food safety standards through qualifications and supporting training. We’ve written the most popular books on food safety and, over the last 35 years, evolved into the UK’s leading provider of regulated food safety qualifications, training materials and e-learning.

This half day CPD event will provide food safety trainers, training managers from corporate organisations, and enforcement officers, with the chance to discuss our proposals for the future of food safety and HACCP training, share in Richard Sprenger’s knowledge and participate in our vision for improving food safety based on UK and international experience.

50 years of promoting food safety in roles as diverse as enforcement officer, government adviser, director and chairman of an awarding organisation gives Richard an insight into food safety that is unrivalled. His passion has seen him travel the world working with trainers, large companies and government bodies to implement improvements to food safety standards.

It is this experience that ensures that not only are Highfield’s solutions to food-safety issues based on good science, but that they are pragmatic and practical, for the real-world situations that occur in business.

Since 2010 Highfield, under the leadership of Richard, has been heavily involved in the implementation of the Dubai government’s mandated Person in Charge (PIC) Programme, a programme that has seen measurable and meaningful success in improving standards of food safety. 

This success has given Highfield the blueprint for a new way of implementing food safety and hygiene improvements. A way that sees the certificate reflect competency, rather than just a box ticking exercise in the latest third-party audit or inspection.

At this event Highfield will unveil what we believe will be a significant step forward in converting ‘the certificate on the wall’ to genuine competence in the workplace, and provide food businesses the means to accept the responsibility for food safety and HACCP within their business.

This is the ideal CPD event for anyone with responsibility for training or implementing food safety improvements.
