Every September marks the beginning of a large push for food safety awarence and education within the restaurant and foodservice industry. September of 2012 marks the 18th annual National Food Safety Awareness campaign with this year's theme being "Be Safe, Don't Cross Contaminate." The NFSM website is dedicated to providing an educational experience through activities, promotions and other resources which are available to you- you can check the site out here.
At Mission Restaurant Supply we believe in the importance of food safety and the impact that purchasing good, food safe equipment can have on your daily routine. The risk of cross contamination or food preparation malpractice is an enormous liabity for your restaurant and truly a risk that you can't afford to take. With the help of educational food safe information and the use of products that make food safety a priority, you can make sure you and your kitchen staff are performing the way they should.
