10 Changes to the Colorado Food Code which will impact Food Service Establishments

On January 1, 2019 the state of Colorado adopted the 2013 FDA Food Code. What does this mean to you as a food service operator in Colorado? It means that your operation will be impacted. In order to prepare the first step is to be aware of what the changes are. The next step is to educate your team, especially managers, so that they can make any necessary adjustments to work flow and food safety programs. The Colorado Department of Public Health expects all food service operators to know what the changes are and to quickly adjust.

There are 10 major changes. These include regulations around “Person in Charge”, Date Marking, Potentially Hazardous Food and other critical items. It is important to be proactive. Don’t wait until your next visit from the Department of Public Health.

Brand Protection Consultants offers onsite, one hour, workshops in the Greater Denver area. These workshops are designed to provide a basic overview of the changes. Scheduling a workshop in your establishment is a simple way to ensure that your team members have the knowledge they need. It will help them understand the “why” behind the changes and how they protect public health.
