NFSM was created in 1994 to heighten awareness about the importance of food safety education. NFSM offers free resources for foodservice industry professionals at FoodSafetyMonth.com and will highlight tips for a number of food safety topics including cleaning and sanitizing, cross-contamination, time-temperature control, personal hygiene and allergens.

"In honor of National Food Safety Month celebrating its 20-year anniversary, we are pleased to share the top tips from the past 20 years covering a variety of vital food safety information," said Dawn Sweeney, President and CEO of the National Restaurant Association. "Our industry serves 130 million meals daily making food safety a top priority year-round for the country's nearly one million restaurant and foodservice establishments."

For the fourth consecutive year, NFSM is sponsored by SCA, maker of the Tork® brand of Away-from-Home professional hygiene products in North America. SCA's Tork® brand is committed to food safety education and hygiene product solutions.

"We work diligently to promote best practices in restaurants and foodservice venues, helping our customers to understand the essential role that hygiene plays in food safety and healthy environments for our industry's employees and patrons."

The association also announces Anheuser-Busch as a first-time sponsor of this year's NFSM. Anheuser-Busch is the brewer of Budweiser, Bud Light, and Stella Artois. NFSM also marks the beginning of a new partnership between the National Restaurant Association and Anheuser-Busch.
