Minnesota Food Safety State Requirements:

Minnesota requires that a person in charge of a food establishment demonstrate knowledge of food safety as outlined in the FDA Food Code. Taking an approved Certified Food Protection Manager (CFPM) Training Course and passing an Exam is one way to demonstrate knowledge. Local requirements may exceed the state’s minimum requirements.

The Learn2Serve Food Protection Manager Certification is approved by the American National Standards Institute and the Conference for Food Protection (ANSI-CFP). This accredited exam is accepted in all states that have mandatory certification requirements for Food Management Professionals.

Minnesota Rules, Section 4626.2010, require each food establishment to have one full-time certified food manager (CFM), except in a few limited food operations. The CFM is often the Person in Charge as well. However, the PIC does not necessarily have to be a CFM if an adequate food safety system has been implemented to show control of risk factors and provides the PIC with information required by the Food Code.

Regulations: Minnesota Food Code - Minnesota Rules - Chapter 4626.2000 - 4626.2525 Certified Food Manager Requirements.
