Food safety and operations

Foodservice companies can evaluate compliance with food safety and hygiene standards using a food safety checklist. This reduces the risk of foodborne illnesses and helps avoid fines, legal action or business shutdown. A general food safety checklist evaluates food storage, handling and preparation procedures. Inspections lead to corrective actions and recommendations. Bureau Veritas carries out food safety and operations audits for all types of restaurants and fast food chains worldwide.
