How Fizz Academy can help your food business in 2020
Fizz Training Academy was launched in 2018 to deliver in-house food safety, health & safety, and risk assessment training for its sister company, Fizz Experience.
The academy doors were opened to external clients in January 2019 when it became clear that other small and medium-sized businesses could benefit from quality food safety, health & safety, and management development training.
