AMCAS provides an expert range of food hygiene training courses in Trowbridge and the surrounding areas that are dedicated to ensuring each customer receives bespoke training for their business, large or small.
Why does food hygiene matter?
For any business offering food or drink, high standards of food hygiene is a must to guarantee that your customers return on a regular basis. In 2010 the Food Standards Agency launched its national Food Hygiene Rating scheme designed to give a simple 1 to 5 star rating to businesses who serve food or drink.
The scheme has since grown in reputation and is the one of the primary factors in customers choosing an establishment over their competitors. A survey found that “61% of consumers said they wouldn’t eat at any establishment that had a food hygiene rating of 2 or below” showing that customers would choose to dine elsewhere if the business lacked a higher rating.

Five Star Ratings
The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme grades businesses, whether they are pubs, cafés or restaurants, based on a checklist that reviews the hygienic handling of food and the cleanliness of the facilities.
The rating scheme is consistently branded so whether your establishment is in Trowbridge or elsewhere in the South West, customers can immediately recognise the five star signs.
A five star rating is a badge of honour for your business and AMCAS training excel in helping you improve your rating through our extensive courses and food safety advice certifications.
According to the Food Standards Agency, “44% of respondents check the rating before deciding to purchase food from an establishment, and most commonly do so by checking the sticker displayed in the food business door or window (62%)”. Source
So how can you improve your ratings? AMCAS Training offer courses and certificates that can help with advice and training.
