Food Handler Training

Employees working in grocery face unique food safety challenges and must be trained for every situation. Whether in the bakery, at the meat counter, or in the produce department, supermarket employees are on the front line of food safety and need engaging, consistent training that mirrors real-life situations to learn and apply important food safety principles.

SafeMark® food handler training is created FOR retailers, BY retailers. SafeMark® introduces retail food handlers to principles of personal hygiene, proper food handling, cleaning and sanitation. Employees learn to apply these principles directly to preventing food contamination and recognize steps needed to protect the safety of food. 

“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 receives, stores, 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.”  –James P. Baldwin, Price Chopper Supermarkets
