Delegate Feedback

"The course itself is both tasking and challenging throughout and is delivered skilfully and knowledgeably, it’s by far the most rewarding course in terms of learning I’ve been on in my 25 years or so in the food industry.  The camaraderie that is developed during the course also needs a mention too…as you do feel a sense of achievement as a group" - Wayne Turner 2 Sisters Food Group (attended tailored course in October 2016)
