The recent Corona / COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in an unprecedented amount of devastation and change to our economy, our lives and the way we now work.
For our whole corporate catering industry, the indefinite closure of many offices has meant adapting not just the products and services we offer, but also the way we work.
Here's what we're doing, and how it will impact the catering services you receive from us.
According to both the Government and the European Food Safety Authority
It is very unlikely that you can catch coronavirus from food. COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It is not known to be transmitted by exposure to food or food packaging.
Despite the low risk nature of food, we would still rather be overly cautious, and take extra steps to keep our staff and customers safe in the catering we provide.
Safety measures we have in place include:
As a food business, we already have very strict policies around health and hygiene, and benefit from regular inspections from our local environmental health office. We also maintain a 5-star food hygiene rating.
We've recently implemented further measures that include:
Our staff follow guidance about self-isolation for those either with symptoms, or who have been in contact with those showing symptoms, as well as those who are required to self-isolate for their own protection.
All team members already benefit from a minimum of Food Hygiene Level 2 training. We've recently updated our training to include "Working at Distance", to help our staff adjust to working in the current climate.
