Last year several restaurant chains were in the media headlines for the wrong reasons, outbreaks of norovirus and the Food Standards Agency figures showed 1 in 13 restaurants failed inspections.
Surveys done since then also show that 75% of us wouldn’t risk dining at one of these establishments if we were aware of the failed inspection and 61% of us wouldn’t eat at a restaurant with a low food hygiene rating.
Diners would rather put up with poor customer service than eat at a dirty restaurant. Diners are also savvy to the fact that they can now check out food hygiene ratings online without even leaving home so don’t need to even step foot into a restaurant to see how clean or dirty it is.
As a commercial cleaning company that has a wide range of clients within the hospitality sector including independent restaurants, restaurant chains and hotel restaurants we take hygiene seriously and believe it is imperative to train all of our cleaning operatives properly ensuring food preparation areas are kept hygienic and clean.
Some of the areas that our training covers include:-
- Handling Foods
- Chemicals Used
- Mopping Floors
- Storing Cleaning Materials
We also ensure an action plan is in place at every site should an outbreak occur.
So if you are a restaurant manager, executive chef or even a customer with concerns about a restaurant you dine in, contact us today to find out more about how we can help you improve hygiene standards.
