Food Safety

Foodservice sales in convenience stores are about 23% of in-store sales, a category that continues to be a key focus area for retailers. The importance of food safety is paramount: Outbreaks affect not only individual brands but the entire industry. Resources from NACS, allied industry groups and associations, and the federal government can help retailers enhance their safe food handling practices and reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
