This food safety guide will help New York City restaurants identify and prevent the common causes of lower grades and increased fines in the annual New York City Health Inspections.

Millions of dollars of fines are issued by the city each year and fines are only trending upward. In addition to fines, restaurants lose millions more in customer revenue resulting from bad restaurant grades; 88% of New Yorkers consider restaurant inspection grades in their dining decisions.*

The best assurance of an "A" grade from the New York City Health Department is to use EHA Consulting Group, 30 year veterans of food safety, public health and epidemiology services, who will guarantee the top rating, provided their recommendations are implemented.

At the very least, reading this white paper on the common pitfalls and following the advice on how to avoid them will help your restaurant be further prepared when the New York Health Inspector unexpectedly knocks on your door.
