Catering managers, supervisors and staff involved in the preparation of food are invited to attend a practical afternoon workshop packed with business advice and top tips.

Aimed at small businesses in Worcestershire but open to all, the ‘Healthier Catering Workshop’ will bring the latest advice from qualified nutritionists and food safety professionals on building healthier menus customers will love, controlling waste and portioning for healthier profits, and catering for customers with food allergies.

It’s is the latest event under the Healthier Choices food scheme that has been supporting businesses across the county since 2015.

Amy Woodcock, Environmental Health Officer at Worcestershire Regulatory Services which runs Healthier Choices, said: “Healthier Choices recognises Worcestershire food businesses that provide customers with a variety of healthier and flexible menu options. It’s only open to those that have at least a four star food hygiene rating, and our members find that having well-recognised credentials helps to instil consumer confidence, signal high quality and standards and ultimately, increase business.

“We are very keen to encourage more food and drink providers to sign up to Healthier Choices which comes with a range of additional business benefits such as nutritional analysis of recipes, and discounted or free training and access to networking and information events like this one.”

The workshop is at Feli’s Bar & Restaurant, in Stoulton off M5 Junction 7, on Monday October 15, 3pm until 5.30pm. It costs just £35 per person plus VAT or it’s free to Healthier Choices Food Awards members. It’s also available at a discounted rate of £30 per person to members of Worcestershire Food & Drink, a new local association of food and drink growers, producers, caterers and retailers.

Spaces are limited and offered on a first-come, first served basis. Book your places by email to hcfa@worcsregservices.gov.uk.
