Why is Food Hygiene Important?

hygiene food safety

Food Hygiene, otherwise known as Food Safety can be defined as handling, preparing and storing food or drink in a way that best reduces the risk of consumers becoming sick from food-borne disease. The principles of food safety aim to prevent food from becoming contaminated and causing food poisoning. With this in mind, ensuring that food is safe for human consumption is likely the most critical part of the food preparation process. This ranges from what is called farm to fork, meaning from the farms all the way to your plate. Check out our article on the food production chain and the possible ways contamination can happen.This means that food hygiene is important at home as well as in the restaurant, retail store or food factory. There has become an ever-increasing awareness of food safety by the general public and news agencies are reporting on food recalls and outbreaks much more often. Reviewing the available statistics, The CDC estimates that each year 48 million people get sick from a food-borne illness, 128,000 are hospitalised, and 3,000 die from food poisoning.

Our goal at Hygiene Food Safety is to help individuals and businesses learn about hygiene and food safety. And to understand bacteria in the kitchen, so that they can build a solid foundation for a strong and sustainable food safety system. HygieneFoodSafety.org formed out of several years of food safety consulting in the food industry.

We focus on helping chefs, managers and staff by creating awareness, understanding and implementation of a hygiene and food safety system. We hope to create hygiene food safety ambassadors throughout the food industry. Where awareness, understanding and implementation fall into place. Thus, creating an effective, efficient and sustainable food safety environment.

We at Hygiene Food Safety have not neglected the aspiring home chef. And we share our knowledge and information that is accessible and understandable to all. Home cooking carries the same risks as a hotel or restaurant kitchen. Especially because there has been a moving trend towards pre-prepared meals.

This means we cater for the newbie, the trainee and those that have been in the industry for many years. We have found that all are in need of help in some form or another.
