Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

This brief piece of work looks at the Food & Safety Act 1990. An introduction outlining what would be covered would be useful to help the reader get a sense of what will be presented. It is also useful for the writer in terms of using it to check that what it is the main body matches what was written in the introduction. The lack of an introduction made it difficult to determine what the writer hoped to achieve with this piece of work. There was mention of food safety training, but it was not clear what training exactly was being discussed.
The writing style was in need of improvement due to the frequency of grammar errors which also affected the readability of the work.
