New and existing food handlers must know the current statutes for the location in which they are employed. Most states today require those working in the profession to pass a course specifically designed for food handlers. Our company offers the Missouri Food Handlers Training in several languages.

The course offer complies with the ASTM E2659 standard practice. This certificate program was developed using the requirements set forth by training specialists, food administration professionals, food handlers, and food safety officials working in the local health department. The organization regularly updates the course to ensure it remains current with the latest food codes. In addition, we continuously review the program to see where changes must be made to improve the quality of the course; learn about changes here.

Missouri Food Handler Details

Does the state of Missouri require a food handlers CARD?

The current Missouri Food Code does not require a certified manager, however, the person in charge must be capable of demonstrating knowledge about foodborne disease prevention, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles, food code requirements, and train and monitor staff.

Missouri counties may adopt their own, possibly more stringent, food safety training requirements. Local jurisdictions may require food manager training, Food Handlers Training, and additional permits and fees. 

Where can i find more information about food handlers certification in Missouri?

You can learn more about the Missouri Food Code from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. The Retail Food Safety page has information about state and local training requirements. 

The Jefferson County Health Department requires all food handlers to obtain ANSI accredited Food Handler or Manager level certification. Responsible Training offers a Food Handlers course that meets Jefferson County training standards.

Check with your county to find out if there are training requirements for your position.

The Missouri Food Handlers Card is valid for three years from the date of issuance. You must retake the course and test upon expiration to maintain a valid Food Handlers Card.
