Food Safety Consulting for Georgia's Restaurants

Letter From The President

Greetings,

As a food service establishment owner or manager, you understand that reputation is everything.  Food safety inspection scores are public information, and bad publicity plastered all over the news and social media is a nightmare that will pummel your bottom line quickly.

With more than 16,800 eating and drinking establishments in Georgia, and more than 300 new establishments emerging every month, the food service industry in Georgia is extremely competitive.  In this climate, you simply cannot afford any blemishes on your food safety record.

But, how can you outshine competing establishments and continue to drive customers through your door?  The answer: by employing courteous and customer-friendly staff, serving quality food and most importantly, maintaining a clean facility and consistently achieving good health inspection scores.

The Benson Mills Group, LLC, is a women-owned and veteran-owned food safety consulting and restaurant cleaning services firm dedicated to educating Georgia's food service professionals and communities on proper food handling techniques, thus aiding in reducing communities' exposure to foodborne diseases. The Benson Mills Group is a team of food safety consultants providing comprehensive food safety services, including training, auditing, and restaurant cleaning services. Our goal is to provide services that help our clients and community groups implement processes that assure safe food and a safe food environment. We help food service establishments meet their goals of maintaining a positive brand reputation and healthy bottom lines.

According to research, foodborne diseases in Georgia have been responsible for approximately 2.5 million illnesses.  In 2010, it was estimated that foodborne diseases cost the State of Georgia approximately $4.7 million in medical costs, quality of life losses (to include loss of productivity), and lost life expectancy.*  Make sure your establishment is part of the solution, by committing to the highest standards in food safety.
