Regular Tuesday or a COVID-19 Wednesday but food needs to be safe at all times!
Starting from the middle of the March, Food inspections have stopped all planned audits for food businesses. This means, that food businesses are the ones who responsible for the food safety at the moment.
By the law, all food businesses must have a food safety plan, or HACCP which helps food businesses to prevent and control hazards, including: hygiene, temperature control and safe sale of food.
Currently, many companies have changed their business models and started selling food for take away and through delivery services due to the current situation. However, these changes must comply with the legal requirements, and food safety plan must be changed accordingly. Following points of risks must be considered: Have your employees completed food safety training? Are they healthy? How have they been checked?
“Food bussineses are trying to sell their food and survive at the moment, and clearly, food safety is not a priority for them anymore”, - says Katrin Liivat, the owner of FoodDocs. “In the times of crisis, we should not ignore the fact that food must be still safe to eat. Otherwise, people will be in the hospitals not only because of the virus, but also because of the food poisoning. We should remember that the virus Covid-19 originated in a fish market, which is similar to street food stalls,”- she added.
