The article focuses on the issue of food safety as discussed in the 2005 Annual Meeting & Expo of the National Association of Convenience Stores. It's a fact that this year, next year and the year after, 5,000 people will die as a result of simply eating. As convenience stores continue to cut into the restaurant and fast-food market, food safety is becoming an even greater issue, and it's time to be proactive. If a retailer operates 100 stores with 30 employees in each, that's 1,000 employees with dirty hands. Aside from food safety, which addresses unintentional food contamination, retailers also must not forget food defense to combat intentional contamination.
