Keeping Food Safe from Farmer's Gate to Customer's Plate

Gregory’s Food Service Experts make sure your services comply with state and federal regulations.  We also offer training and help with certifications.

New Regulations in North Carolina and the Southeast

Compliance with the FDA food code in North Carolina will now require food safety certification of the Person in Charge (PIC). Lack of nationally recognized certification will result in a two-point violation. Other Southeastern states are reviewing their processes and may soon implement similar changes.

What Can You Do to Comply?

Gregory Pest Solutions offers a comprehensive two-day Food Safety Manager training course through the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals*. This two-day course covers all the essential elements of FDA Food Code.

Students will learn all aspects of safe food handling. After completing the course and passing the exam, students receive their nationally recognized Food Safety Manager Certification, which they will not have to renew for 5 years.

We offer this course to anyone seeking certification at very affordable pricing. Current Gregory Pest Solutions customers qualify for discounts. For groups of 9 or less, the course will be taught at Gregory Pest Solutions’ training center in Greenville, SC. For groups of 10 or more the client will provide the course location.
