Food Safety Management Principles
NAC
We all need to eat and drink to stay alive, so it is important that our food does not harm us in any way. Everyone who works with food has a responsibility to safeguard the health of consumers. As a concessionaire, you have special responsibilities for consumer health, so you must make certain the food sold at your workplace does not cause illness, injury, or any other problem.

Food Safety Management Principles is an excellent training choice in jurisdictions where self-study is permitted. This book concentrates on the basic principles of good food safety practice. These are principles you must establish and maintain if you are to sell food that is safe to eat. The principles are the same for every food business, but exactly how you apply them depends on your particular establishment. As a member of the National Association of Concessionaires, you receive an exclusive discount! Click here for more information.
