Coronavirus pandemic has forced people all across the globe to practice social distancing and regular hand washing. The lockdown all across the country is making everyone's life miserable and dull.
In this situation, the best way to add colors to these mundane lives is to serve the poor souls with your restaurant's mouthwatering dishes.
However, this Corona pandemic is rising in the minds of people, another fear of getting contaminated from food packets.
Although there is currently no evidence of transmission of the virus via food packaging, prevention is always better than cure.
So, while you deliver food, ensure that your customers don't fall prey to this deadly virus, the reason being a simple carelessness from your side.
You can follow our suggestions and serve your customers with virus-free delicious meals!
Here are suggestive measures you can take to ensure safe food packaging:
Store Your Food Packaging Materials:
Storing the package for 72 hours before using it is a healthy option as it has been found in a study that the virus can stay alive only for about three days on plastic.
Reduce The Risk of Infection:
Disinfect the container using bleach before use as it will reduce the risk of infection. It might be possible that the person who has higher chances of having corona has just sneezed on the container before it came to you. After storing for 3 days, the packaging material should be disinfected.
Worker's Hygience for Safe Food Packaging
The workers responsible for food packaging should sanitize themselves before doing so. Wearing masks and gloves is necessary. Washing hands for 20 seconds should be prioritized over anything.
If any worker shows any symptoms such as fever or respiratory problems, they are required to seek medical attention immediately.
Tightly food packaging
The packaging should be tight and sealed properly to avoid leakage. If you are delivering through apps like Zomato or Swiggy, you can use their safety seals.
However, if you are delivering your delicacies with the help of your own agents, do not forget to add the extra layer of protection to avoid spilling and contamination of food.
Shipping the Food Items
The delivery personnel should consider dropping the parcel before the gate instead of directly handing it over to the customers. In this world of social distancing and self-isolation, this is highly recommended.
