Food safety refers to proper handling, storing and preparation of food in a safe and healthy manner.Zip Food Handler provides its students proficient safety training when it comes to managing food. Our food handler training courses are directly in synchronization with the food safety training techniques prescribed under the regulations of the health department.
Food safety in the kitchen is not just limited to serving safely cooked food. It starts right from the methods of accepting raw material, to storing it properly, to using it correctly during cooking, to cooking to the correct required temperature, to serving it healthy. Having the correct knowledge of kitchen food safety improves the quality of service of the restaurant.
Zip Food Handler's certification course teaches you to ensure correct food safety in the restaurant kitchen. The standard of safety maintained in a restaurant kitchen decides how good or bad the quality of service for the customers is.
Certificate usage is defined and dictated by partnered health department officials, state or local laws or regulations and/or legislative documents.
Applicants may use their safe food handler certificate to provide proof of satisfactory completion of the Zip Food Handler safety course to their employer and health department.
