Below are a few reasons why you should use Always Food Safe to complete your Food Handler training:

Californian State Law requires all food handlers have a California Food Handler Card. New hires have 30 days from the date of hire to obtain a card.

A California Food Handler Card must be obtained from a training company with an ANSI Accredited Food Handler Program.

A food handler is defined by law as a person who performs any duties that involve the preparation, storage or service of food in a food facility.

Our, ANSI Accredited, California Food Handler Card IS approved throughout the entire State of California, except in the counties of Riverside, San Bernardino, and San Diego.

Food handlers who work in Riverside, San Bernardino or San Diego counties must obtain a county–specific food handler card because these three counties have existing local food handler requirements and are not affected by the state law.

The short answer is YES!

Your Manager or a Health Official need to be confident that you have received the relevant training, it matches current laws, and more importantly you understand the reasons behind food safety and that you are applying food safety practices and methods to your work/role.

Taking an ANSI accredited course means you have met very high standards. You can demonstrate a strong understanding of food safety and by passing the final exam, prove your knowledge.

The most important point is that you receive training, understand it and implement it.
