NEW MEXICO RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION REINFORCES ITS COMMITMENT TO FOOD SAFETY DURING SEPTEMBER’S
NATIONAL FOOD SAFETY EDUCATION MONTH® 2009
“Food Safety Thrives When You Focus on Five”
The New Mexico Restaurant Association (NMRA) will partner with the National Restaurant Association and participate in the 2009 National Food Safety Education Month®, this September, to showcase its commitment to food safety education and training. This year’s theme is “Food Safety Thrives When You Focus on Five.”
This annual food safety campaign strives to: build awareness of the restaurant and foodservice industry’s commitment to serving safe food, heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education, and encourage additional food safety training for all industry employees.
During the month of September, NMRA will conduct food safety training classes in both English and Spanish. The management certification course will also be offered in both English and Spanish. “We are excited about participating in this month-long campaign,” said Carol Wight, CEO of NMRA. “Americans are aware of food safety now more than ever before and, through National Food Safety Education Month, we have the opportunity to highlight what we are doing in the restaurant and foodservice industry to educate our employees and customers on proper food safety procedures.”
