Food Hygiene

Food hygiene refers to the practices and procedures applied to ensure the safety and quality of food during its production, storage, preparation, and consumption. The goal is to prevent food contamination and protect consumer health.


Food hygiene measures include employee training, regular cleaning and disinfection of production facilities, compliance with temperature controls, and proper food handling. Hygiene checks and audits are crucial for verifying compliance with standards.


Food hygiene is critical across the entire food industry, from production to consumption. It is particularly important in restaurants, food processing plants, and retail establishments to ensure consumer safety and meet legal requirements.


  • Public health protection: Food hygiene practices minimise the risk of foodborne infections and illnesses.
  • Compliance with legal requirements: Companies can avoid legal issues by adhering to food hygiene standards.
  • Enhancement of reputation: Good food hygiene practices build consumer trust and contribute to a positive brand perception.
