The Importance of Food Hygiene

Food poisoning affects millions of people each year in the UK, the seriousness of which cannot be underestimated because:

  • Reported cases of food poisoning now are nearly 10 times greater than they were in 1980.
  • Anyone who handles food may be prosecuted if found responsible for a breach of the law.
  • In the UK at least one person contacts food poisoning every 30 seconds.

Good food hygiene is essential to ensure that we are not harmed in any way from the food and drink we consume.
