Covid 19 - Food Hygiene and Safety Guidelines

To support hotel and restaurant professionals with their hygiene and safety practices in the COVID-19 situation, Araven has prepared five guides that focus on the importance of hygiene and food safety in this sector.

 

• Cleaning and disinfection of utensils and surfaces.

 

• Hygiene and food safety in the handling and preservation of vegetables.

 

• Hygiene and food safety in the handling and preservation of dry foods.

 

• Hygiene and food safety in the handling and preservation of meat and fish (animal proteins).

 

• Hygiene and food safety in the preservation of prepared foods.

 

Professionals from BCC Innovation, the technology center of the Basque Culinary Center have taken part in preparing the contents of these guides. This project is additional to Araven’s sponsorship of the “Food hygiene and safety guidelines” published by the Basque Culinary Center and Euro-Toques.

 

This initiative clearly highlights the commitment of both institutions to help catering businesses improve their health and safety measures, by proposing general and specific hygiene and food safety measures applicable in restaurants that will help them regain the confidence and trust of their customers.

 

 

Guide "Cleaning and disinfecting utensils and surfaces in restaurants"

The foodservice industry, just like the rest of the food industry, must apply food safety management systems that adhere to the principles of Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) to manage the hazards that can affect food safety and to avoid food contamination. For this purpose following the General Food Hygiene Principles established by the Codex Alimentarius(1) is recommended, which includes implementing good hygiene programmes, cleanliness and sanitizing practices, delimiting food preparation areas, control of suppliers, storage, distribution and transport.
