FDACS Changes Food Safety Inspection Scoring
YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW, but on July 13th the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services changed the way Food Safety inspections were scored. The Department’s explanation for the change was to make the inspections more objective and reduce the subjectivity for the inspectors. It was also an attempt to bring consistency to the inspection process. While all of these objectives sound good and seem very desirable to the Grocery industry – the system appears to be flawed.
We have scheduled a meeting with the management team at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. This is an important meeting and we are inviting any of our members to attend. Below are the details for that meeting:
