Canadians are getting more serious about food safety. Many municipalities now make it possible for the public to view the results of food safety inspections online at any time, putting crucial information into the hands of thousands of potential customers around the country. Instead of worrying about not passing your next food safety inspection, you can instead use food safety training to ensure that your food service establishment never has to worry about inspection results again. Additionally a food safety incident can mean multiple negative reviews on various platforms such as Google, Facebook, and Yelp. Food safety training is becoming more and more important to foodservice businesses from a marketing perspective, so it’s important that you and your staff know how to use it to gain a competitive edge.
