IMPORTANT FOOD SAFETY PRECAUTIONS IN THE CATERING INDUSTRY

 

The food industry can be very strict, especially when conforming to the standards. Customers expect you to deliver service at the best quality possible. The most important factor here is the food itself and how safe it is to consume. Health inspections are done for a reason: not only safeguard the customer’s well-being but also to save your brand name. Read our blog to learn important food safety precautions in the catering industry.

 

 

 

Cleaning Supplies

This is one of the most basic needs for your catering business with standard health regulations. You should have easy access to soap and water. The kitchen can be an easy breeding ground for bacteria, especially when it’s very compact and items are very close to each other. What everyone wants is clean and bacteria-free employees and cooks to avoid possible food poisoning. You can also place no-touch soap dispensers and water faucets to even reduce touch contamination. This ensures a highly germ-free establishment.

Cross Contamination

This is the worst error for any decent establishment. Cross contamination can easily be overlooked especially with compacts storage spaces. If you want to have a successful catering business, there’s only one and very simple way to avoid this, and that's efficient organization and itemization. You should be diligent enough to properly segregate and store foods and products from each other. This means ensuring that raw ingredients like meat should not be close to pre-cooked, and cooked items and frozen foods should be stored in a properly ventilated cold refrigerator.

 

Compliance

All of these precautions can really help reduce health risks and keep your business at a high standard. However, everything also hinges on one factor which is how compliant and faithful your employees are when following all the healthy safety guidelines you’ve implemented. You should be strict at times as to how they conform to these. Every employee should be aware and understand all the necessary health rules and regulations of your establishment. A well-trained staff will define how strong your health safety will be.
