Food Safety: Storage and Inventory Management, Online Training Format

SKU: 328

Food Safety: Storage and Inventory ManagementIn the day-to-day operations of a food service establishment, food comes in and goes out constantly. Deliveries must be accepted and put away properly to prevent food from becoming contaminated, or money and product are wasted. Cooked and prepared foods must also be stored properly to ensure their safety and quality. Employees who work in a food service establishment must be well-versed in the proper procedures for receiving and storing both uncooked and prepared foods in coolers, freezers, and dry storage areas.  This course trains employees in those procedures that can prevent costly inventory losses and even more costly foodborne illnesses caused by contamination of improperly stored food (Discounts are available for Enterprise Training by calling us at 1-800-521-9667).
