The 2017 FDA Food Code requires MOD or person in charge of a food service operation to become a Certified Food Protection Manager.
The strongest asset of a food service industry is a ServSafe® trained associate and the greatest liability is an untrained associate.
The 2017 FDA Food Code stipulates a certified food service manager must be on duty during business operational hours. MOD can monitor associate activities and implement corrective action as required.
Best practices dictate that the owner, executive chef, managementincluding key associates, should be ServSafe® certified and perhaps front and back of house associates should at least acquire a Food Handler Achievement Certificate.
Food Service operations, especially restaurants, experience high turnovers therefore when advertising or during an interview process, consider requesting that the applicant be ServSafe® Food Certified as a condition of employment.
Understanding potential risks and hazards throughout the flow of food requires training associates to make safety the top priority.
Most food service establishments use aspects of HACCP Management System practices in their operations
