Note:  Hidden Crises in Your Hospitality Business

1. Microbiology/ Chemical contamination
There are often cases on various types of contamination during the food production process. Food poisoning cases not only bring loss in your sales, they would break your long-established reputation. Thus, it is necessary to conduct regular food testing before serving. Professional reviews of food processing should be done to find out the loopholes in food safety. Following HACCP would be the most common practice worldwide to minimize the risk of food contamination.

2. Origin of food source
Another food safety risk would be incurred from the source or during transportation of food. To mitigate the food safety risk along the food production chain, we have auditing programs to audit food origins and logistic procedures. Various recognized standards in Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) enable traceability of food, reducing your liability risks and costs.

3. Service/ Hospitality Quality
The hygiene of the waiters would be crucial to food safety risk. Without a proper hygiene level among your operation team, the customers would risk food poisoning. Thus, food hygiene training would be essential to mitigate the risk of food safety when serving the food. Trainings and mystery shopper programs would further help hospitality businesses to evaluate and improve service quality constantly, achieving better sales in the end.
