Essential Functions of a Certified Food Protection Manager

Minnesota requires every restaurant / food institution to have at least one* full-time employee to have a food manager certification. This “person in charge” (PIC) provides for:

  • The application of appropriate food safety techniques to mitigate/prevent food borne illness
  • Ensure presence of a PIC whenever food is handled

The Certified Food Protection Manager is there to protect the health of the customer by applying best practices as put forth by science, research and the FDA Food Code.
