Why ServSafe® Food Safety


As of January 1, 2010 ALL food service establishments are required to be compliant with the NEW Alabama law. Which requires eating and drinking establishments to have at least one manager on staff that is food safety certified. If the certified manager is not on premise, there must be a person left in charge, which can answer the health inspectors food safety related questions.

The Alabama Restaurant Association (ARA) has made preparations for this transition easier than ever for you and your staff. We offer ServSafe® training throughout the state several times each month for your convenience.
