At this busy time of the year, the kitchen is under pressure.

Here are a few tips to keep everything safe and under control

  • If your menu is changing for Christmas, ensure you double-check your allergen sheets
  • In this busy period, it’s more important than ever to stay on top of your kitchen daily records – this is your due diligence and defence if anyone reports illness after eating at your venue
  • If you do receive an alleged food poisoning complaint, follow your food incident form, and if you don’t have one, get in contact with us!
  • If staff are ill with sickness or diarrhoea, they must inform management and leave work immediately. They cannot return until they have been free of symptoms for 48 hours.
