Today I’m speaking with Kevin, a food safety consultant with over 20 years experience. He currently acts as the senior food safety consultant for Essential Food Safety Consulting here on Long Island. Kevin and I discuss how consumers and businesses can be prepared for the changing world in which we live in.

As a consumer, you should be aware of best practices whether dining out or purchasing products that were manufactured in a facility that meets regulatory guidelines. It’s important to take into consideration how and where your food is prepared. The good news is many businesses already implement best practices for your safety and health.

One of the things that may change drastically are food tastings and events or in retail. That’s something that many startup food manufacturers rely on to woo new customers and get the word out about their products. 
Guidelines are changing quickly. There are things we can’t predict and we suggest you contact your county or state board of health or visit their websites for the most up to date guidelines as it relates to food retail and manufacturing.
