The catering industry guide to good hygiene practice is the first update of such guidelines in 20 years
The catering industry guide to good hygiene practice is reported to have been launched after an investigation into the death of a grandmother who died of suspected food poisoning linked to eating at a pub carvery. The updated catering industry guide to good hygiene practice has been welcomed by the Food Standards Agency and will be officially launched on 11 July 2016.
It is recommended that food-serving pubs buy a copy of the guidelines and it is predicted that the guidelines will be extensively used by Local Authorities.
The guidelines will include requirements of complying with the Law, guidance to achieve top marks in the hygiene rating scheme, requirements for premises and equipment, food hygiene and safety procedures, food safety management, procedures, advice on staff training, best practice arrangements beyond the Law and advice on allergen and complying with food information to customer legislation.
