Tip of the Week

Keep food out of the temperature “Danger Zone” (between 8°C – 63°C)   When foods drop below 63°C, the likelihood of bacteria multiplying increases

If you hold food hot on a display counter or hot cupboard/bain marie, it is vital that you manage the food temperature.

 Keep hot food held at above 63°C.

If the temperature drops below 63°C, it can only be held for a maximum of 2 hours but you do have the option to reheat to above 75°C.  We recommend reheating once only.

Alert

Check and record the hot held food temperature hourly as part of your due diligence
