Food Establishment Owners

Welcome to the Newton Food Establishment Owner's page where restaurant owners can find helpful information, forms and updates on the new changes taking place for restaurant inspections in Newton. 

FREE Food Safety Trainings
We offer food safety trainings to managers, owners and employees of restaurants in Newton.  These trainings are not a ServSafe training, rather a way for our inspectors to show you different ways to deal with common problems pertaining to your restaurant. The trainings are free, and will be offered monthly. Please contact Elizabeth Grella if you have any questions at egrella@newtonma.gov.

The next food safety training will be:

Tuesday, January 23rd (SPANISH)
8-10am

Newton City Hall room 205

Registration required. To register, click here.

 
(If you would like to request a food safety training, or if your establishment would like to host a food safety training, contact Elizabeth at egrella@newtonma.gov)

FDA Grant
We were awarded a grant from the FDA to standardize our food inspection program. The ultimate purpose of this grant is to reduce foodborne illness in Newton. We will meet the requirements of the grant by fulfilling activities that coincide with each “standard” set by the FDA.
