Panic due to the scarcity and the increasing price of foods can be overcome with the development of protection management. This study examines the design for developing superior food safety management in households during the COVID-19 and New Normal pandemics. The research method is a survey with a qualitative approach. The research location was deliberately set in Banyumas Regency, Central Java Province, Indonesia. The study results show that there are five types of superior food consumed regularly by the informant's household. The five are staple foods, side dishes, vegetables, fruits, and spices. The informant's households faced the scarcity and the increasing price of these superior foods. It is just that every informant household has superior food safety management, which is still not completing the satisfactory factor during the pandemic and New Normal times. The development of superior food safety management in informant households requires completeness and readiness of economic elements, technology, local resources, and cooperation.
