Foodservice sales in convenience stores are about 26% 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.
The NACS Food Safety Forum is the only industry-specific event of its kind for our global convenience retail community. This year’s event will take place on October 7 in conjunction with the NACS Show. For questions about the program, reach out to Chrissy Blasinsky at email@example.com.
