Finally, your newly opened butcher shop is doing well after few weeks of operation. So, what’s your next concern? Well, for your butcher shop to have a regular flow of customers there has to be excellent customer service, availability of top quality meat products and the highest level of cleanliness. Maintaining cleanliness can be quite challenging because you have to make sure every corner including the butchery equipment and tools are properly cleaned. For you to succeed on this goal below are the areas that you have to focus when cleaning.
Cross-contamination can arise at any butcher shop because of the presence of raw meat products. Mishandling and non-compliance of the hygiene standards set by the health officials could result to spread of bacteria, food poisoning and other diseases brought by dirty environment. Among the areas inside a butcher shop that are exposed to cross-contamination are storage units where raw and cooked meat products are stored. It’s essential that the storage units are regularly cleaned with the right butchers cleaning products to keep them clean and dry. If you have a good number of workers, delegate the cleaning task to one person to ensure he or she does it efficiently.
Various butchery equipment units are used at the butcher shop like meat grinding machine, sausage filler machine and meat slicer. These butcher’s tools and equipment are prone to dirt and it’s vital that every staff is properly oriented on how to clean them properly to reduce cross-contamination. Again, the use of appropriate butchers cleaning products is imperative to ensure the equipment units including butcher knife and meat tray are clean prior use.
One of the areas of the butcher shop that are exposed to dirt and unavoidable liquid spills from raw meat products is the flooring. Due to the heavy flow of traffic at a butcher shop, either from customers or workers the floor may accumulate dirt and be the cause of bacteria formation. If you want to maintain a germ free environment clean the floors as needed. Inform your workers to mop quickly spillages from raw meat because this area could be a breeding ground for bacteria. For stubborn dirt and grime use special butchers cleaning products.
There you have it some of the areas at you butcher shop that should be given attention during cleaning. If you want to know more about the best butchers cleaning products and other tools needed to keep your butcher shop running smoothly, contact any of the representatives at Butchers Paradise.
