What exactly is Food Hygiene?

Per the World Health Organization (WHO) website:
“Food hygiene are the conditions and measures necessary to ensure the safety of food from production to consumption. Food can become contaminated at any point during slaughtering or harvesting, processing, storage, distribution, transportation and preparation. Lack of adequate food hygiene can lead to foodborne diseases and death of the consumer.
WHO assists Member States in promoting safe food handling through systematic disease prevention and health education programmes directed to food handlers, including the consumers.”

What can you expect to hear from us?

Your family’s health starts with good food hygiene. Sometimes this is something you do yourself, like switching chopping boards between preparing raw meats and other food items. Sometimes it’s about being informed when purchasing food, like with the recent romaine lettuce recall. Whichever the focus, from week to week, we can all benefit from informed decision making and good food hygiene for our furfams.
