“Each year we are required to take a number of food safety and other related courses. The discounts we receive on these courses through our Food and Beverage Atlantic membership always pays for the cost of the membership. That alone would be reason enough to be a member, but our membership also gives us access to exclusive opportunities and support we find extremely valuable. ”
