Breaking Down the 10 major changes to the Colorado Food Code – Change #1 – Person in Charge

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.

There are 10 major changes. One of the changes is related to requirements for the PIC – Person In Charge. This is very important.

What is the change?

At least one employee with manager or supervisor responsibilities must be a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) at most establishments. Ensure that your manager is certified by an accredited program.

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.

For more information on the food code changes you can visit the Colorado Department of Health website. If you have additional questions Brand Protection Consultants are happy to help. We can be reached at 720-669-8032 or . For information on our workshops go to
