Kitchen Hygiene


The standard of your kitchen hygiene influences your entire business. Restaurants, hospitals, government facilities and office canteens are all at risk of the spread of disease due to sub-par kitchen hygiene. It’s your responsibility to ensure that your staff and customers aren’t subjected to unhygienic facilities and compromised food safety.

Commercial kitchens have to adhere to a set of stringent laws as set out by The Department of Health. These include the use of food-safe chemicals, adherence to Pre-requisite Programme for Food Safety as well as the use of regular pest control services. If you’re not using professional cleaning services and providers of pest control, you’re not only breaking the law, you’re putting the health of your staff, patrons and entire business at risk.

Easy ways to maintain the highest standard of kitchen hygiene:
  • Compile a detailed daily and weekly cleaning schedule, and delegate tasks to kitchen staff members.
  • Display your cleaning schedules in a noticeable area, and get staff to sign off their tasks once completed.
  • Avoid losing profitable kitchen time due to faulty equipment by having your fat trap cleaned on a regular basis by professionals. Incorrect maintenance and usage of fat traps can lead to unpleasant odours, as well as infestations of pests.
  • Along with your fat trap, make use of professional kitchen canopy cleaners. Don’t cut corners when it comes to your kitchen canopy cleaning – which are the most common cause of fires in commercial kitchens. .
  • A regular pest control plan that’s documented is a necessity. In order to meet The Department of Health’s requirements, this needs to be rendered at a minimum of once a month.
