Food Safety

Food safety is paramount when serving food to customers and our families.  Having a bad reputation for cleanliness and food safety protocols can harm the reputation of your business and could result in loss of revenue, fines and/or closure of your establishment.  Using proper handling, preparation, storage and cooking techniques can help prevent food born illness and keep your customers safe.


Why it is important

Every year millions of people suffer from food born illness and other food related complications that sicken and hospitalize many, a small percentage of cases even result in death.  Food born illnesses are preventable and an under reported problem in the United States.  

Food born illnesses can pose a very serious problem for certain groups of people who are at higher risk than others and there are a lot of factors that play a role in food safety.  From farming practices to preparation for consumption, each layer has it's challenges that need to be addressed.
