Missing the middle man...a brave new world of food service without brick and mortar facilities

The CRA and the CCDEH will be hosting an open discussion about the many changes the restaurant industry is confronted with, including third-party delivery services, home-prepared retail food business, outdoor dining, and food waste. The goal of the summit is to discuss industry challenges as they relate to food safety and to explore opportunities with the local regulators for promoting our food service logistics and food safety. Industry panelists of CRA restaurant members will also take part.
