Food Handler Permits

The food service protection division works to provide education to food service workers and food service businesses in an effort to promote safe food handling and preparation practices. Individuals that work in facilities that prepare or serve food are required to obtain a Utah Food Handler Permit. Permits are obtained after successfully completing an in-person or on-line state approved training course.
