Food safety in your kitchen is just as important as the quality and sustainability of our food supply. Organizations around the world recognize the value of using basic food handling practices to minimize the risk of food contamination. The impact of food poisoning outbreaks linked to food companies greatly affects branding and repeat business.
It is assumed by many people that food poisoning is a result of poor quality of food or food handling. In reality most of the food poisoning cases occur due to poor kitchen hygiene, with germs from raw foods (including meat products, fruits and vegetables) being transferred to kitchen surfaces or other foods whilst preparing meals, or food not being cooked properly, poor GMP and storage practices.
