hotel roomA key aspect of running a successful hotel is providing clean, comfortable rooms for your guests. But just as important is the cleanliness and safety in the hotel kitchen, restaurant and buffet area (as applicable). Good food hygiene prevents harmful bacteria from developing that could get guests sick from the food prepared in your hotel.

Kitchen Facilities

Your kitchen and all employees who handle food preparation should adhere to best practices when it comes to food storage and handling. Ensure that the kitchen is properly lit and ventilated, along with having appropriate drainage. All equipment used for food prep and cooking must be made of food-grade materials and kept clean. Additionally, food waste should be disposed of as soon as possible to prevent contamination and/or the spread of pests.

Water Supply

All water that is used as an ingredient or for cooking, heating and cleaning (including ice) must be of drinking quality. This too goes for the water that employees use to wash their hands while cooking and after using the restroom. Any water of lower quality—such as that used for fire control and heating—should be kept in an isolated system to prevent food contamination.

Personal Hygiene

All kitchen staff should be well-versed in proper personal hygiene for food service. This includes:

Wearing clean clothing

Removing watches/jewelry

Frequent hand washing

Staying away from food while sick

Dining is very much a part of the travel experience. Offer your guests the very best food service by ensuring the safety of the kitchen and meals.
