Educational Institute’s New Food Safety Textbook
Focuses on HACCP Process


December 2004, LANSING, Mich.— Guests don’t want to have to think about food safety when they visit a food service operation.  That’s the job of the staff.  “Food Safety: Managing the HACCP Process,” published by the Educational Institute of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, provides hotel and restaurant food service managers, employees, and students with the essential information they need to implement a comprehensive food safety system that targets every phase of food production and service.

Written by Dr. Ronald F. Cichy, CHA, CFBE, CHE, professor and director of The School of Hospitality Business at Michigan State University, this eight-chapter book is an easy-to-understand resource for staff training or classroom teaching.  It presents the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) method in a systematic, understandable format.  Clearly defined terms; detailed lists of food safety responsibilities for top managers, mid-level managers, and staff members; and checklists for all of the control points make this a resource that can be readily put into practice in any food and beverage operation.

Highlights of the book include:

  • Examples of the Food Safety Risk Management Program from actual food and beverage operations
  • Vital food safety information for a broad spectrum of food service situations, including lodging limited-service breakfast bars, banquet and buffet service, off-premises catering, room service, and mobile food service, as well as restaurants
  • Food safety standards that reflect the 2004 updates to the 2001 US FDA Food Code
  • Discussion of best practices, applicable to food safety programs in any country
  • Overview of foodborne illnesses, food spoilage and food preservation issues, and the latest food safety risks
  • Examples of forms and reports used in HACCP record keeping
  • Two chapters dedicated to discussion of facilities and equipment cleaning and maintenance
