What is Food Handler Training?
In Texas, local regulatory authorities (health department, city, county) may require food handler training to prevent food borne illness. Food safety training is for employees that prepare, cook and serve food as well as handle equipment and utensils.
People improperly handling food is a major factor responsible for foodborne illness. Education of the food handlers provides more qualified employees, thereby reducing the risk of foodborne illness outbreaks caused by improper food preparation and handling techniques.
