Food safety is the practice of preventing foodborne illnesses by properly storing and preparing food, sanitizing your kitchen, and taking seriously any vector of possible contamination. From their first moments in a kitchen, restaurant workers are taught to hold food safety as an almost sacred industry value. Yet even with that culture, as the pandemic rages and instant online reviews threaten to sink an establishment over any miscue, flawless food hygiene has never been more vital. New technologies help restaurants maintain food safety, thus protecting customers and an establishment’s reputation.
Food safety technology will help you prevent messes and to catch errors before they become a problem. Bring staff up to speed with a development system such as Trust20, which will educate them specifically on food safety. Once your workers are pros with this stuff, set them up for success with fail-proof food storage. Consider refrigeration systems that alert you automatically when the temperature of a certain item rises or falls below a pre-set point. Did the power fail, or was a freezer door left cracked open? Digital systems such as Pathspot can let you know when something’s amiss, to ensure your food is safe and your inventory doesn’t spoil.
