Standard Operating Procedures
 

Foodservice SOPs are written practices and procedures and are the basic ingredient to producing safe food. It is essential to train employees and emphasize the importance of following the procedures.

The National Food Service Management Institute (NFSMI) has developed food safety SOPs in conjunction with USDA and FDA. Although the NFSMI SOPs include HACCP-based principles, you should remember that SOPs are only one component of an overall food safety program.

These SOPs are available in both Microsoft Word® format (.doc) and Adobe® Acrobat® Portable Document Format (.pdf) and are listed below. Clicking on an SOP will open it in a new window.

The full food safety Standard Operating Procedures document may also be downloaded in its entirety either as a Word document or as a PDF file. Please note that the complete document is extremely large and may take several minutes to download depending on your connection speed.
