Food Handling Issues in the Food Service Industry: Ann Hamilton, Field Specialist, Food Safety
The Mount Washington Valley area has a wonderful selection of good restaurants to choose from when thinking about going out to eat. I have worked with the food service industry in the Mount Washington area and throughout Carroll County on safe food handling issues since 1990. My interest in food safety and the food service industry began when I was a child and my grandparents built and operated the now extinct popular Glen-Mor Restaurant in Kennebunk, Maine. Along with one of my uncles, my grandparents operated the business from 1963-1997. Of course, I along with my mother, siblings, cousins, and other family members had the pleasure of working there.
