When working in a kitchen, it’s imperative that hygiene levels are kept as high as possible, and one way of doing that is by using colour coded chopping boards. By using coloured chopping boards, you can ensure that food is prepared on a safe surface, helping to prevent bacterial cross contamination, which is a major source of food poisoning.
Here at Bidfood we stock a variety of kitchen chopping boards, designed to make working with food simpler and more hygienic. By using a coloured chopping board set correctly, you or your employees can prepare food without worry.Why use colour chopping boards?
Due to the Food Safety Act, it is essential that all chefs in commercial kitchens use colour coded chopping boards in order to comply with environmental health regulations. By using coloured kitchen chopping boards, chefs can significantly reduce the risk of cross contamination of high risk foods, such as raw meat. The various coloured chopping boards correspond with the following foodstuffs:
Red – raw meat
Blue – raw fish
Yellow – cooked meat
Green – salad and fruit
White – bakery and dairy
Brown – vegetables
We stock both high and low density chopping boards, so you have more choice over the type of boards you feel best for your kitchen.
