Description

THE definitive book for food safety training and certification

 

With its comprehensive coverage of key food safety concepts, the ServSafe® Coursebook 7th edition will completely prepare readers for the ServSafe Food Protection Manager Certification Exam, and, more importantly, it will promote adherence to food safety practices in the workplace.

Food safety topics are presented in a user-friendly, practical way with real-world case studies and stories to help readers understand the day-to-day importance of food safety.  ServSafe Coursebook is perfect for a 16 week college semester.

 

Developed by the industry, for the industry, ServSafe® is a proven way to minimize risk and maximize protection for foodservice owners, employees, and customers. Recognized as the industry standard, ServSafe offers a complete suite of printed and online products and is the most important ingredient to food safety training and certification success.
