According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), establishments with managers certified in food safety are less likely to have critical violations on their inspections. It’s important to make sure your managers receive the right certification—one that speaks to the unique food safety needs of the supermarket. Certification also demonstrates your company’s commitment to food safety. SafeMark® is the only food safety training and certification program that keeps retailers and their needs top of mind.

“The SafeMark® program is an integral part of Food Safety training and education in my organization.  SafeMark® materials are both practical and effective, allowing me and my team as food safety educators to teach actionable and relevant food safety concepts for both managers and line-level employees in a retail setting. The program provides foundational knowledge needed to apply key food safety principles each time a food worker prepares, handles, displays or sells food. SafeMark® has been a tremendous tool for increasing knowledge and retention of key food safety principles for our food handlers at all levels throughout the organization.”
