Food safety tips

  • Always wash your hands, work surfaces, utensils and chopping boards before you start preparing food and after handling raw meat, including poultry.
  • Use separate chopping boards, knives and plates for preparing raw meat.
  • Keep raw meat away from ready-to-eat foods such as salad, fruit and bread.
  • Make sure that the chicken is cooked until steaming hot all the way through, no pink meat is left and any juices run clear.
  • Wash or peel raw vegetables before use – this will help clean them and remove any harmful bacteria that might be on the outside.
