The 4Cs of food hygiene
The four main things to remember is good hygiene are the 4Cs:
You can use the 4Cs to prevent the most common problems when dealing with food.
Storing food safely
It is very important to store food properly to keep it safe, to protect it from harmful bacteria, chemicals and objects falling into food. You'll need to store different types of food by storing in:
- containers you keep in cupboards or on shelves - such as pasta, rice and flour
- a fridge
- a freezer
Transporting food safely
When we transport food, from our premises to another event or from the cash-and-carry to our premises, we must prevent it from becoming contaminated, for example with dirt or bacteria.
It is especially important to make sure that:
- food is transported in packaging or containers that protect it from contamination
- chilled and frozen foods are kept at the right temperature we use refrigerated vans where needed.
- raw and ready-to-eat foods are kept apart
By law, food business operators must ensure that food handlers receive the appropriate supervision and training in food hygiene, which is in-line with the area they work in and will enable them to handle food in the safest way. In the UK, food handlers don't have to hold a food hygiene certificate to prepare or sell food.
The skills taught in official training programmes can also be learned by:
- training on-the-job
- relevant prior experience
To keep food safe, it is essential for you and your staff to have high standards of personal hygiene.
Personal hygiene covers:
- fitness for work
Inspections and food hygiene rating
Authorised officers from our local council Basildon inspect our premises to check if our business is complying with food law and producing food that is safe to eat.
If you serve or supply food direct to the public, we are covered by the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.
Our rating will be based on what is seen on the day of inspection and you may be given a hygiene rating from 5 to 0, based on the food hygiene standards found at our premises we hold a 5 star rating.
