All food establishments are inspected to ensure compliance with the provisions contained within the Merged Food Code. Food Protection personnel monitor food offered for consumption to ensure that it is free from adulteration, properly labeled, identifiable and manufactured at an approved source.
In an effort to explain and to simplify the permitting process for the operation of a Food Service of Retail Food establishment within the City of Worcester, please use the following checklist as a tool to guide you through the permitting process. All food related businesses require licenses or permits and inspections prior to operation.
Exterior Grease Interceptor must be inspected monthly and cleaned every three months (min.) or when 25% full. Interior Grease Trap must be inspected weekly and cleaned monthly (min.) or when 25% full.
Maintain and keep the cleaning documentation at trap location and provide with future food permit application renewals.
