The importance of good hygiene for food businesses

In the food and beverage industry, it is essential to maintain hygiene standards in compliance with food safety regulations. Failure to put in place and adhere to appropriate hygiene procedures, particularly in food preparation areas, can result in cross-contamination and the spread of pathogens throughout the premises. This can go on to have an enormous social and economic impact for a business, resulting in closure of premises, loss of profits, hefty financial penalties and damage to brand reputation.

More significantly these contaminations can cause serious illnesses. In fact, food borne pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli and Campylobacter result in 600 million cases of foodborne diseases and around 500,000 deaths each year.* Implementing the right hygiene practices, monitoring hand hygiene compliance and introducing a culture of food safety throughout the business can help reduce this risk.

In addition, in a recent study by Initial, 94% of people said the cleanliness of the washroom has a significant impact on their image of a restaurant, café, bar or pub. By providing a clean, hygienic environment, customers are more likely to leave with a good impression of your brand and business, which can in turn result in recommendations and repeat custom.
