On January 1, 2019, Colorado will adopt the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's (US FDA) 2013 model Food Code and 2013 Supplement to Colorado's food industries. This will mean some operational changes for all retail food establishments. Those changes include, but are not limited to:

  • Certified Food Protection Managers
  • Proper Date Marking of ready to eat foods that have to be maintained cold to be safe
  • Procedures in place for the proper cleanup of a vomiting or diarrheal event
  • Hand-washing signs at all hand-washing sinks used by employees


Get a list of the top 10 questions regarding the
changes to the Colorado Food CodeWe will be highlighting these changes over the next several months to prepare you for the January 1 transition date. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to Nick Hoover for clarification. 

 


HELP ME, HELP YOU

Ok, Jerry McGuire. We know you love surveys. Take the following Financial Impact Survey to help us educate elected officials on the economic impact of laws and regulations affecting your company and our industry. This short survey is a component of our broader engagement strategy and will be used to promote our industry's priority issues. The survey will take less than 10 minutes of your time, and your participation will make a tremendous difference. The National Restaurant Association has built an economic model that can estimate the impact of specific legislative or regulatory actions. This model allows them to provide data for our specific state on policy issues.
