NRA says culture is key to safer restaurant fare
During National Food Safety Month in September, the National Restaurant Association will be concentrating its considerable strength on helping brands create a culture of food safety within their operations, according to a news release.
The organization's ServSafe program aims to educate players in the food service industry about how prioritizing food safety within their system's operations can be a turning point for improvement in overall food safety, a news release said.
Over the next month, the organization will provide training tools and resources that address the overall scope, definition and role of food safety in restaurant operation, as well as hand-washing and time-and-temperature controls in food storage, handling and service.
The NRA created National Food Safety Month in 1994 to "heighten awareness about the importance offood safety education," the release said.
