Our food safety expertise starts at the ground level; our experts have managed bakeries, markets, fast-food chains, and fine dining establishments. We have sourced and purchased ingredients, cooked and served the food, cleaned the kitchen, stocked the shelves, and trained others on food sanitation and restaurant operations.
Some food travels a great distance and changes hands many times before it is consumed. In the food industry this movement of food, from the farm to the table, is referred to as the flow of food. Along the flow of food there are numerous opportunities for sanitation standards to breakdown and for contaminants to be introduced. In an effort to maintain food safety, the industry follows established standards that work to prevent contamination, protect consumers from known allergens, and to receive, prepare, cook, serve, and package food in a safe manner.
The food safety experts at Robson Forensic are frequently retained when individuals are injured or fall ill in relation to the consumption or service of food products. Our experts have done the actual work at every level within the food service industry, from stocking shelves, to cooking food, to waiting tables. We also have experience training food professionals in accordance with ServSafe and the FDA Food Code. If you need an opinion on the actions and responsibilities of real world food professionals, you have come to the right place.
