So, you may be wondering…
Helping over 700 start-up catering businesses each year, NCASS is a trade association for caterers and suppliers in the UK and Ireland.
The organisation aims to “provide caterers with information, systems and support whilst helping them be safe, legal and profitable”.
To view NCASS’ membership packages, click on one of the links below, depending on whether you’re a mobile caterer or work from a fixed site:
Prices start at £21 a month and vary depending on what package you chose.
The main difference between the packages is the number of places they offer on training courses.
The training courses include: Hygiene (levels 1 to 3), Health & Safety, First Aid, Fire Extinguisher and HACCP.
As well as free places on the training courses listed above, as a catering member you receive half price places on a Sustainability Training course (normally priced at £95).
The course was developed by NCASS, in association with the Sustainable Restaurant’s Association (SRA) and addresses three concepts of sustainability:
(1) Sourcing food (2) Social responsibility and (3) Environmental practices
The course is all online and takes up to 3 hours. And if you pass the 20 minute online exam, you’ll receive a “stylish A4 colour certificate, laminated for display in the kitchen”.
As well as taking NCASS’ Sustainability course, why not green your catering business by switching to sustainable food packaging?
