It is important to take the right food handling precautions when working with a variety of foods. From canned goods to fresh produce and meats, you need to make sure you use the right procedures to avoid food spoilage, food poisoning, bacteria contamination, and other such risks.
Food safety begins the moment food arrives at your place of business. You need to make sure to quickly get perishables into the freezer or refrigerator. Even dry and canned goods need to be stored at the right temperatures to ensure and maintain their quality.
Food safety continues at each stage of food preparation. Prior to preparing any food, you need to make sure your kitchen is set up and prepped ahead of time. Once you start bringing out food, you need to make sure you use some form of temperature monitoring to verify food does not exceed specific temperature levels.
Food safety involves using the right food handling techniques to avoid cross-contamination. In addition, cooking and serving food equally have their own safety precautions you need to practice.
