Unilever offers students an education in nutrition for the workplace

Unilever Food Solutions has launched a health and nutrition training programme to help lecturers raise awareness and improve catering students' knowledge of nutrition in the workplace.

The programme complements a new "Principles of Nutrition in Food Production Environments" unit that has been added to the Qualification Credits Framework.

Tracey Rogers, managing director of Unilever Food Solutions, said: "We want to empower chefs of the future to recognise the influence they can have over their customers' health. Times are changing, as are consumer needs, so we want to ensure we're equipping young chefs with the right knowledge and skills."

Delivered by expert lecturers, the one-day training programme is made up of seven sessions, including the building blocks of nutrition, catering for special diets and retaining nutritional content when cooking. Students will receive a formal qualification through vocational educational organisation City & Guilds.
