Hear more about the passport and how it can support your business, and the wider industry, to recruit the people with the core competencies for a great career in food and drink.

The National Skills Academy for Food & Drink and the Food and Drink Federation are calling on food manufacturing firms of all sizes to back a new nationwide Compliance Passport designed to make it easier to find new recruits with basic food handling and safety accreditation, provide a common industry entrant benchmark and raise the profile of industry jobs.

The new Food & Drink Compliance Passport, set to be introduced at no cost to employers later this Spring, offers pre-entry accreditation to job hunters seeking entry-level roles.  The scheme speeds up interview short-listing and job onboarding, saving time and money for firms and fast-tracking eager and committed new talent into the sector.

The Food & Drink Compliance Passport acts as a quick and easy way for employers to identify entry-level job candidates with pre-interview compliance certification at:

  • Food Safety Level 2
  • HACCP Level 2
  • Health & Safety Level 2
  • Allergens awareness
