TOBE Co. Food Safety Continues As ETF Vendor

KANEOHE, HI – TOBE Co. Food Safety today announced its 2009 schedule and pricing for ServSafe Food Safety Classes.

TOBE Co. President Tom Frigge said, “We’re very happy to continue to provide this all important service to the restaurants and people of Hawaii.” Even though there is currently no state law requiring Food Safety Training for restaurant workers, as there is in most other states, Frigge says “it is still extremely important and the right thing to do. Besides protecting the health of those who live and eat out in Hawaii, this training also helps protect our biggest industry, tourism.”

TOBE Co. Food Safety has been an approved vendor under the Employment & Training Fund Program for several years. The State program run by the Workplace Development Division will pay half the tuition for eligible students, making these one-day classes some of the least expensive in the entire country.

The first class of 2009 is scheduled for Tuesday, January 20, the next is February 17. Additional dates can be found on their website,

ServSafe is the “Gold Standard” for Food Safety Education in the United States. One of only two programs approved by the Conference for Food Protection to meet the requirements set forth in the FDA Model Food Code, the National Restaurant Association reports millions across the country have become “ServSafe Certified.”

Mr. Frigge has been teaching ServSafe in Hawaii and around the Pacific Rim for over three years. He has a three-year appointment to the Advisory Council for Food Protection Practices. This group of Food Safety Experts makes recommendations to the State Legislature about how Hawaii Food Safety Laws should be amended in light of recent scientific research.
