Our guide to ensuring hygiene in food preparation areas
If you run a business which involves the preparation or handling of food, it goes without saying that cleanliness and hygiene are of paramount importance. Failure to take food hygiene seriously can lead to serious consequences, not least in terms of your reputation, but also risks making customers ill.
Here at Alpha Consumables we provide a wide range of highly effective cleaning products and equipment, designed to make cleaning food preparation areas as simple as possible. From colour-coded cleaning through to disposable clothing, we sell everything you need to ensure hygiene in the kitchen.
Prevent cross-contamination with colour coded cleaning equipment
Cross-contamination can be hugely dangerous and happens when bacteria is spread across different areas. One of the best ways to avoid this is by using the colour coded cleaning system. Based upon the practice of keeping separate equipment for cleaning different areas, the spread of bacteria is controlled and limited. You could, for example, use red equipment to clean toilet and bathroom areas, reserving green equipment for kitchens and blue for general areas. Our range of products includes everything you need to make the most of the colour coded cleaning systems; from mops and buckets, through to cloths and anti-bacterial liquids.
Effective cleaning of food preparation surfaces
Special attention needs to be made to any surfaces on which food is prepared. It’s important to wipe down surfaces to remove visible dirt, before using a disinfectant to kill germs and bacteria. Don’t forget about other surfaces such as taps, cupboard handles, door handles and light switches.
