Holchem Wins Training Company of The Year Award

News | 23 November 2015

On Friday afternoon in The Savoy Hotel in London we were invited to the SOFHT Awards which recognise and celebrate excellence within the food and its associated industries. 

Judged by a panel of experienced food industry professionals from the SOFHT’s (Society of Food Hygiene and Technology) membership – winners were announced on Friday – and the team spent a nervous lunch waiting for the results.

AND WE WON…..‘Training Company of the Year ’.

As a leading provider of hygiene training courses and products to the food processing sector in the UK and Ireland – we couldn’t be more proud.

Over the years we have built up an extensive training portfolio which covers a variety of courses including:  Safe Working with Chemicals (Level 1), Cleaning and Technology (Level 2), Food Processing Hygiene Management (Level 3), Allergen Management (Level 3), Listeria Management (Level 3) and many more.  Our Level 2 and 3 qualifications are often viewed as ‘hygiene passports’ within the food manufacturing industry.

Earlier this year, we also launched our e-learning training academy.  Conscious that much of the industry works within a shift culture, our Holchem Training Academy means that all employees can find time to be trained on the relevant legislation and guidelines that ensure best working practice.  The new e-learning is a valuable ‘add-on’ to an already extensive and impactful training programme portfolio that is set to expand in 2016.

In the last 12 months we have not only trained in excess of 7,500 people around the UK, Eire and overseas but managed to facilitate a pass rate of over 95%.  In an industry where training requirements are constantly changing, our courses are constantly reviewed and refreshed to keep them relevant and in-line with the latest industry legislation – and we are really pleased that this was recognised at Friday’s event.
