It seems as though you can’t turn on the TV or go anywhere online without hearing about another case of food sickness. It’s almost as if there’s a new outbreak every week. If it’s not the lettuce it’s the chicken, if it’s not the product it’s a dating error. As our society continues to grow and create a food safety culture, it’s becoming more important than ever to take some time and invest in your relationship—your relationship with food safety that is. Take our advice, this is one date you don’t want to stand up.
Calendar dates and food go together like macaroni and cheese or peanut butter and jelly. It’s that big of a deal. And, now that you’re hungry for some comfort food, here’s some information about our Date It Food Safety Labels.
We’ve all heard the expression, ‘too many cooks in the kitchen,’ but what happens when you have a restaurant to run and require ‘all hands on deck’? One person might spend the morning cutting and prepping the veggies for the day and another might be in charge of something else. The problem is, when things aren’t carefully monitored and labeled, it can be a huge issue. Ready to eat food shouldn’t be held for longer than 7 days as it can begin to grow hazardous bacteria in that time.
Not only will you keep your customers safe and continue to serve quality food, you’ll also reduce food waste and keep your restaurant kitchen running smoothly. Date coding keeps everyone informed and aware of which products need to be used first and which are ready for disposal. Date It Food Safety labels ensure your inventory is properly stored and the food you’re serving is of the highest quality. Our labels make it easy to interpret with days of the week and use first labels. We also have labels that offer space to write important information like the item and who prepped it. Plus, our labels are in multiple languages to reduce confusion and ensure safety.
