Amidst a climate of continuing threat to the world’s food supply, safeguarding the food preparation and processing infrastructure is a priority. There is a need for the food supply to be properly regulated and monitored. Companies that handle and serve food should have the moral responsibility to guarantee the safety of customers. However, the government’s efforts through regulation and inspection alone are not enough. Our industry needs to maximize  efforts to make sure that the food provided to the final consumer is safe.

Over the years, several food safety practitioners and experts have done well in maintaining high food safety standards and promoting excellence in the foodservice industry. These efforts are worth celebrating for their commitment to go above and beyond. The food safety division of Professional Disposables International (PDI ®) is set to hold its 5th Annual Sani Awards™, an honor that recognizes leadership and innovation in food safety within the foodservice industry.

Sani Professional Logo“As a company, we are passionate about food safety, and we know how important it is to the general public. We aim to recognize and celebrate excellence in food safety,” noted Elise Lenz, Sani Professional’s Senior Product Manager.

The first edition of the Sani Awards™ which was held in 2014 was a real eye-opener to the essence of appreciating food safety practitioners and experts in the industry and how these awards can motivate individuals to do more. “We had our maiden edition back in 2014 when we presented the awards at the Food Safety Summit, a trade show and educational event that happens annually in May, ” Lenz explained.

“We started with three awards: the Outstanding Food Safety Program Innovation which recognizes a program that has been implemented in a food service operation but not training related, the Exceptional Food Safety Education which focuses on education and training program implementation, and lastly the Leadership in Food Safety which recognizes food practitioners that have really made it their mission to educate both their employees and the general public”.

Sani Professional has announced that the fifth edition will have a new category in order to widen the scope of the individual honorary awards winner at the ceremony. The new category, Food Safety Champion, will honor and recognize the recipient’s outstanding commitment to food safety and their significant body of work that has had a lasting influence and major impact on food safety in the food service industry.
