Comprehensive COVID-19 response
There currently exists no evidence that Coronavirus is transmitted through food. Continue operating your current Food Control Plan, while ensuring proper hygiene practices are being followed stringently.
When the government relaxes the lockdown, allowing restaurants, bars and nightclubs to open, practice guidelines on physical distancing, restricting the number of people at your venue, and implementing a guest register for contact tracing.
The guest register should contain guests’ full name and address, phone number, email address, and the date and time of arrival to your venue. Let guests know that the details will be used only for contact tracing and remain in the register for a limited time.
As a social enterprise, Eat My Lunch continuously tries to find ways to improve its operations to keep the costs as low as possible. The team identified digitisation of the paper forms needed for production and quality management as an opportunity to improve process efficiencies and reduce production costs.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently developing additional recordkeeping requirements for businesses along the supply chain to enhance the traceability of potentially contaminated food products. These practices shall intensify the tracking and tracing of certain foods to ensure fast and effective traceability processes in case of potential recalls. The FDA aims to foster the rapid and effective identification of the contaminated foods’ recipients to mitigate or prevent foodborne illness outbreaks or serious adverse health consequences for consumers.
