The food business whether it is a restaurant, retail, manufacturing, etc. can suffer dearly if it fails to ensure hygiene of the equipment they use. The safety of the equipment should be a priority but it is often considered a trivial matter and can get ignored. The consequences of ignoring the importance of cleanliness can be catastrophic for the business so make sure that it is part of the business plan otherwise your food dreams will shatter before you can enjoy the success.
Here are a few consequences of poor hygiene that will make you understand its importance.
The Danger of Foreign Bodies:
The food business will quickly lose its reputation if the customers find something unexpected in their food. It is evidence that the business is not following all the health and safety codes set by the responsible departments. Nowadays the news can spread around the world in minutes so there is something unexpected in the food, the food scare will travel fast and you will lose customers.
A business should have a clear safety protocol so that there is no chance of contamination. All the employees should be clear on the protocol and trained to use the safety equipment. Education and training will make sure that all the safety precautions are followed and the equipment is not misused. It will also keep the food safe from dangerous foreign bodies that contaminate food and keep it fresh.
Dirty and Moldy Equipment:
The equipment used by the food businesses should be in perfect condition so that hygiene can be ensured. The cleaning equipment used in the food industry can get damp and moldy and if you keep using it then the contamination will transfer to the food. You will end up throwing away the food stock even before it reaches its use by date because you cannot serve it to customers.
The cleaning equipment and storage appliances like cold rooms and double hinged door bottle cooler need regular cleaning and maintenance so the food is not vulnerable to contamination.
Risk of Chemical Contamination:
The commercial kitchens, food production areas, and service areas need daily cleaning at the end of the business day. To maintain hygiene cleaning products are used and they contain chemicals. If even a tiny spot of cleaning chemicals is left on the counters or equipment it will lead to food contamination. The cleaning products should be stored away from food products so that the food is not at risk.
Lack of Maintenance Leads to Bad Hygiene:
Maintenance is critical for running a successful food business. The commercial equipment used is expensive and without proper maintenance, it will break down and the business will suffer. Without maintenance, it is impossible to maintain hygiene and cleanliness. Checking the equipment will make sure that you are able to identify the potential contaminants and faults of the equipment so that the business does not suffer.
If you want to make sure that the business is able to retain its reputation then it is essential to identify the threats to hygiene and find the right solutions to the problem.
Ikea large chair with your pretty add-ons
it’s no key that Ikea is a good position to purchase inexpensive child products. But here’s one way to modify one of their hottest items.
Recognize this large chair? It’s no key that Ikea is a good position to purchase child products. And at $25 (currently available for sale in Europe for $19.99), the Ikea Antelop large chair is hard to beat. It’s wipeable, the feet come down and you may even bunch them. But similar to the chair, the Ikea-made components for the Antilop are pretty basic.
Enter Yeah Child Goods.
Frustrated by the hard to remove tray, very roomy seat—and the fact that nothing of the Ikea components participate in the decor of her house, mompreneur Katie Kruithof decided to give her chair an upgrade. She designed dishwasher safe, food-grade silicone placemats to match perfectly in to the prevailing tray, which is often removed for quick clean-up. Next came designer cloth covers for the Antilop chair place (available from Ikea for $5). In 2016, she exposed an Etsy store and started selling the products to different Ikea-loving parents.
In 2019, she included adjustable base sits in bamboo, maple and cherry wood to give the chair the perfect concluding touch. Notice: occupational counselors agree that large chairs without base sits can be detrimental to mealtime achievement as it leaves baby’s feet hanging, which is often rather uncomfortable.
While plenty of different hacks of the Antilop chair exist on the web (this one employs a cheap exercise group to make a pseudo base rest), Kruithof easily has one of the very visually attractive approaches.
