From Gate to Plate…
In partnership with the National Restaurant Association, SQFI has developed a unique solution for those in the Food Service industry to reduce and eliminate food safety risks. The SQFI Food Service Program is a third-party audit that was created to provide the Food Service Industry with the tools to build a proactive, rather than reactive, food safety management system at all their locations.
This program incorporates food safety roles from the top of the corporate chain down to each specific site location with a heavy emphasis on management and creating a thriving food safety culture within the company. The Food Service Code provides structured guidance to make implementation accessible, attainable, and easy to understand.
The SQFI Food Service Program was developed in conjunction with food safety experts in the Food Service Industry.
