Merchandise Description

Norman G. Marriott and Robert B. Gravani (2006)

This book provides sanitation information needed to ensure hygienic practices and safe food for food industry personnel, as well as students. It addresses the principles related to contamination, cleaning compounds, sanitizing, and cleaning equipment. It also presents specific directions for applying these concepts to attain hygienic conditions in food processing or food preparation operations.

The book’s new features include:

  • two new chapters that address biosecurity and allergens as they relate to food sanitation;
  • updated chapters on the fundamentals of food sanitation, contamination sources and hygiene, HACCP, cleaning and sanitizing equipment, and waste handling disposal; and
  • comprehensive and concise discussion about sanitation of low-, intermediate-, and high-moisture foods.

Study reference for NEHA’s REHS/RS and CP-FS exams.
413 pages, hardback.
