A Certified Food Protection Manager plays a significant role in keeping food safe and the ability to serve safe food. He/she has to protect the public from foodborne illness.

Anytime food is produced or served, it is recommended that at least one person should be working with a Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) license .
