The Montana FOOD STAR™
Award Program

foodstar logoThe Montana FOOD STAR™ Award Program has been developed by the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services Food and Consumer Safety Section (MT DPHHS/FCSS) as a means to recognize those food service establishments that utilize Active Managerial Control to ensure the safety of the food in their establishments. Establishments will be recognized for developing and using documented and approved procedures, training management and staff, performing self-inspections, and implementing corrective actions.

The benefits to participating in the Montana FOOD STAR™ Award program include providing safer products to your customers and public recognition for doing so. Your accomplishment in meeting the Montana FOOD STAR™ Award standards will be acknowledged and promoted by the MT DPHHS/FCSS in newspapers, the Montana Vacation Planner magazine, on the Visit Montana website, and on the MT DPHHS/FCSS website. In addition, establishments may receive public recognition for their participation in the Montana FOOD STAR™ Award program from their local health department and community.
