Importance of Food Safety for the growth of your restaurant.
Food safety is the most crucial aspect of any food-based business. A restaurant can serve you the juiciest burgers or the most delicious melt-in-your-mouth brownies, but if they fail to keep up with safety standards you’ll definitely end up eating someplace else.
Moreover, as restaurants and food chains start to re-open after COVID-19 lockdowns all over the world, people are increasingly vigilant about what precautions are being taken to ensure them a healthy, clean meal.
To guarantee a safe meal for a consumer, multiple, strict precautions must be taken. From keeping cooking areas hygienic to separating utensils used for raw and cooked elements, you can never be too safe. A single mistake can lead to devastating consequences. For starters, an unsatisfied customer is every restaurant’s worst nightmare and one bad review can tarnish your brand name before you know it. But what’s worse (than raging customers and mean reviews!) is that there is absolutely no way to track down where the mistake was made and prevent it from happening again.
on the other hand, if a business does have a structured model to monitor food safety, with carefully planned out operations for employees, the obvious conclusion might be that they’re in clear. Unfortunately, that’s hardly ever the case. Implementing their model, by using paper-based checklists or even software like Excel, is where businesses often struggle. You can assign employees a list of tasks but what way is there to know that they’ve completed them? Management can, and usually does, rely on store managers but how reliable will the relay of information be if they’re trying to stay in your good books? In conclusion, the final reports will not only be a vague recollection of the operations done, but they will usually also end up being biased.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) unsafe, food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemical substances, causes more than 200 diseases – ranging from diarrhea to cancers. Moreover, an estimated 600 million – almost 1 in 10 people in the world – fall ill after eating contaminated food and 420 000 die every year, resulting in the loss of 33 million healthy life years. As the leaders of the food business, the responsibility for every customer’s life falls on your shoulders. Are you convinced that the steps you’re taking are enough?
