Team Award

This year the Food Safety and Sanitation Steering Committee proudly presents the inaugural Food Safety and Sanitation Team Award!  This is a separate award from the Line Worker Award, which focuses on the individual.  The Committee wants to spotlight excellence in your facilities, because we know that it takes a team to create a food safety culture.  The Team Award packet is attached to this email.
