Food hygiene quiz
This page has been developed to give you a food hygiene practise test, that asks you questions which are similar to the ones that
you will be asked in `real food safety course quizzes. In these tests you will be asked a series of questions, with each one having a
set of multi choice answers, you are awarded points for every correct answer you select.
Mock tests such as these are an excellent way for you to assess whether you have attained the necessary knowledge to be ready to
take on a Food Hygiene course. There is mounting evidence which suggests that students who take quizzes can learn faster than
those who simply study.
You do not need to sign up or register to take part in this test, so you can start straight away.
