NSF, Paster Training Partner on Retail Food Safety Training

“Through this partnership, we will strengthen the global food supply, help prevent food terrorism and assist communities in decreasing alcohol-related incidents,” says Paster Training president.

NSF International’s Global Food Safety Division and Paster Training Inc. have partnered to offer a combination of training and consulting services to the foodservice and retail food industries.

These service offerings are increasingly important in light of new federal legislation to further protect the nation’s food supply.

NSF International is a public health organization with food safety supply chain and retail expertise in auditing and certification services, and Paster Training provides food safety and alcohol management training and consulting for many leading food retailers and operators. By combining this expertise, NSF and Paster Training can offer a comprehensive food safety and training solution that meets the needs of today’s retail food sector.

NSF International’s food safety services <http://www.nsf.org/business/food_safety/index.asp?program=FoodSafSer>  include: training, global food safety certification, HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) consulting and operations management to verify compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act and strengthen food safety practices.  NSF also offers training courses <http://www.nsf.org/training/>  for supply chain food safety programs such as:

Supplementing these NSF services, Paster Training offers truck driver food safety training, client quality service training and alcohol management training.
