Hygiene is your ultimate responsibility in your commercial kitchen and you need to take responsibility for everything that happens in there. If there is catering equipment that hasn’t been sterilised, if you have pests or some kind of infestation, or if you don’t clean surfaces as much as you should, then this is all your responsibility.
It’s important that you keep any objects that aren’t from your kitchen away from food preparation areas. For example, if a customer wants to take food home with them and they have brought their own container, it is usually required that they pack the food themselves at their table. This avoids you having potentially dirty containers in your kitchen that could have all manner of bugs and diseases. You can’t be too vigilant when it comes to protecting and cleaning your kitchen and making sure that hygiene is at the forefront, all of the time.
