    • Connecticut's decision to adopt the Food Code was driven by the aim to bring uniformity and consistency to the regulation of the food service industry. This adoption aligns the state with the majority of other states that have already embraced a national, standardized regulatory system. By adopting the Food Code, Connecticut ensures a solid scientific foundation and legal framework for regulating the food service industry while also maintaining consistency with the federal performance standards currently in place within the state. Moreover, this adoption promotes alignment with prevailing practices within the food service industry. Familiarize yourself with the 2022 FDA Food Code
