Johnson County Community Health Services is pleased to announce the winners of its Food Safety Excellence Award for 2018.
Twenty six local food service establishments qualified for the award, including full-scale restaurants, fast-food establishments, school cafeterias, and nursing facilities.
This is the second year for the award that recognizes food establishments that have demonstrated excellence in compliance with Johnson County Missouri Food Code and other public health standards during the calendar year of 2018.
Johnson County Community Health Services recognizes that excellence is best achieved when food service management fully endorses employee education and training. Therefore, the 2018 award goes to establishments that have exhibited excellence in sanitation and food safety, as well as employee education.
All local food establishments are inspected regularly by JCCHS, and must pass these inspections in order to remain open. Those receiving the excellence award substantially exceeded the standards of the Missouri and Johnson County food codes.
