Manager Training

From a food safety perspective, the grocery industry is different from other food industries. Employees must be skilled in food safety practices to prevent contamination any time they receive, prepare, handle, hold or sell food.  

SafeMark® is the only food manager training created BY retailers, FOR retailers and provides supermarket managers and supervisors with the knowledge to train staff and achieve food manager certification.

To meet your needs, we offer both in classroom and online training curriculums.

“The increasing complexity of the food industry, the improved ability to identify/trace foodborne outbreaks and other economic, staffing, cultural and behavioral challenges make it imperative that food protection managers know and control the risk factors that impact the safety of the food they sell or serve.”

–FDA Food Code

“Using the SafeMark® program has been an invaluable tool to help prepare retail store managers for the Certified Food Protection Manager exam every step of the way. The real-world examples and scenarios used throughout the training help to prepare learners for the exam.  I would  recommend SafeMark® training to anyone looking to prepare for the certification exam.” –Steve Oswald, Wakefern Food Corp.
