The Handbook was designed to give entry level food managers a single source for study and focused on need-to-know information.

His expertise is in the development and implementation of food safety and food quality programs, specifically in Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems. Dr. Linton spent twelve years working in retail food establishments. In recent years, he has educated food workers and managers from all segments of the industry throughout the nation and the world. Dr. Linton has developed several different types of food safety training programs for retail food managers and workers. He also works closely with the retail food industry on research projects that help improve the quality and safety of the food they serve. There are several reference books available in the field of food safety. However, most of these resources are directed toward a particular type of food establishment. The authors of Essentials of Food Safety and Sanitation believe there is need for a text that applies food safety principles to all food establishments, regardless of type. Chapter 4, The Flow of Food, is the focal point. It clearly defines the important strategies for handling food, from receiving until it is placed in the hands of the consumer. Chapter 5 follows with a comprehensive description about how to apply the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) system to the process. The authors wish all readers continued success in their food safety and sanitation activities. Regardless of where you work, you must always remember-foodborne illness is a preventable disease. Follow the basic rules of food safety and head for a satisfying career in the food industry.
