Food Protection Manager Certification required by Michigan Law
Michigan adopted the 2005 Food Code in April 2008, requiring every licensed food service establishment in Michigan to have at least one certified food service manager on staff. The person in charge must pass an exam through an Accredited program.
There are several resources available for operators to become certified.
