Fully Funded Level 2 Food Safety Training for All Staff at Oakland International

Ethical family business and multi temperature supply chain solutions, distribution, and logistics specialists, Oakland International, has rolled out a fully funded Level 2 Food Safety training course for all employees.

Oakland International employs over 480 people across its facilities and is a specialist contract packing, storage, picking, food distribution and brand development support provider for ambient, chilled and frozen food to the retail, convenience, discount, wholesale and food service markets in the UK, Ireland and via their partner in Spain.

Oakland International Managing Director Shaun Foley commented: “As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak we decided to re-examine hygiene and food safety across the business, viewed as an essential undertaking in helping fight the virus.

“Once done the Board unanimously voted to fully fund the Level 2 Food Safety course for all employees, with every new employee also undertaking the course on induction, as it’s essential for everyone to observe and follow procedures which help lead to a good clean and hygienic working environment for all.”

An accredited qualification for anyone working within the food sector, by the end of July every Oakland employee had completed their Level 2 Food Safety course.

Added Shaun: “We thank the whole team for their contribution during, and post lockdown, for continuing to ensure Oakland International maintained client services to the highest standards. Putting in place measures to protect every member of our teams across all sites, the way they responded is nothing short of outstanding.”

Oakland International is a BRC AA accredited business, a double Queen’s Award for Enterprise recipient for International Trade and Sustainable Development and is working towards becoming the first carbon-neutral business within its sector.
