Why is Food Safety Manager Training Necessary?
Food safety and sanitation are integral to operating a successful food service. The safety of our food supply is a responsibility shared by consumers, producers, sellers and handlers. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that because of foodborne illness 76 million people fall ill, 325,000 are hospitalized and 5,000 Americans die annually.* Because of these alarming statistics, many states require certification of food managers which may include a food safety exam.
Why is a Food Safety Course so important and why do some states require it? The answer is very simple. Every consumer deserves and has the right to be served food that is safe to eat.
