Why should I add my documents?
A great benefit of The Food Corridor is the document tracking system. You can add expiration dates to any verification document and let The Food Corridor send you a notification before the document expires.
Expiration notifications are sent to both the kitchen admin and the food business 45 days, 2 weeks, and 3 days before the document is set to expire, giving you plenty of time to renew and update.
Different categories of documents can be uploaded and stored on the platform.
These documents are specific to your food business. Ask your kitchen manager which documents are required of you.
Generally, these are Food Handler/ServSafe Certificate, Food Business License, and Insurance, but these requirements vary kitchen to kitchen.
You and your kitchen can upload and access these documents.
Private documents are documents just for you to access and are not visible to your kitchen. You can upload these to your account to help you keep everything accessible and in one place.
These are documents that your kitchen has added for all their clients to see, so you can access them at any time. A food business cannot upload common documents.
Membership documents are other documents that are just between you and your kitchen (certificates, licenses, leases, kitchen contract or agreement, etc.). A kitchen may require you to upload one or more membership documents. These can be uploaded and accessed by both you and the kitchen.
