Priority Issues

Each year the Food Protection Committee (FPC) sets priority issues which are agreed upon by the members of the committee and are approved by the Board Food Safety Committee. Priority issues are the focus of the FPC's time and resources as they develop programs and materials that will make a measurable impact in retail food safety.
