Food… Mmm! If we’re not eating it, we’re preparing it, or simply thinking about it! Whether that’s planning the evening meal, or trying to stick to a diet, we just can’t get enough of food! As you can imagine, it’s big business. In the food industry, ensuring anything destined for human consumption is safe is the only way of staying above the law, so knowing how to do that is vital.
