Gina Nicholson Kramer, RS/REHS, executive director for Savour Food Safety International, recently joined her husband, Bob Kramer, RS/REHS and five other partners (Vince Fasone, Barb Hunt, Joe Kramer, Miguel Manzano and Gerry Nunn) to purchase Sherwin Food Safety, headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. The company has been renamed Savor Safe Food and is now based in Worthington, Ohio.

According to Kramer, Savor Safe Food will expand upon the food safety services Sherwin Food Safety offered the foodservice, grocery and lodging industries. Savor Safe Food provides services to help businesses comply with health department regulations while protecting employee and customer health and safeguarding brand protection.

“Ed Sherwin, president and founder of Sherwin Food Safety, was an industry trailblazer, working with culinarians in the hospitality industry to emphasize that food safety was their responsibility and should become embedded as part of their business culture,” Kramer said.    

Savor Safe Food offers the following services:

  • Quality assurance audits
  • Health department/health inspection compliance audits
  • Food safety training certifications
  • Crisis response assistance
  • HACCP and food safety plans
  • Ingredient and nutrition information and analysis
  • Mystery shopper program

Vince Fasone, RS/REHS, Savor Safe Food managing director and partner, indicated Savor Safe Food has adopted the Sherwin Score, an integrated, independent third-party verification system to ensure client companies are following food safety standards. The company also partners with Goodwin Hospitality for audit tools & mystery shopper program and FoodLogiQ for software and solutions relative to food recalls, traceability and supplier engagement.

Savor Safe Food has assembled a team of top-quality food safety partners with extensive experience in education, auditing, behavioral change, government regulations, HACCP compliance and crisis management,” Fasone said. “We take an innovative approach to food safety, serving independent restaurants, multi-unit food service businesses, hotels, conference facilities, cruise lines, government offices, convenience stores and supermarkets.”
