According to recent research from food safety management company Checkit, 20,000 restaurants risk losing 61% of customers due to poor food hygiene since the FSA called for hygiene marks to be placed on doors.
Wrap Film Systems is advising operators to improve their scores by looking at every stage of food handling from preparation to cooking through to reheating and storage.
Marketing director Paul Feery said: "Using a professional kit for a professional kitchen can help minimise harmful bacteria and food contamination. You wouldn't fillet a fish with a bread knife and the same goes for cling film with cardboard cutterboxes.
"Cutterboxes can easily get wet and damaged from kitchen spills, and over time harbour germs such as E-coli, which could be passed onto food, especially when moved from station to station. There's also the risk of injuries from the box's exposed razors, as well as unnecessary wastage due to usage difficulties and tangling, which can lead to untidy work stations.
"The beauty of Wrapmaster is that one easy switch to a professional kit can help improve kitchen standards and support operators in meeting two of the three areas food safety officers inspect for hygiene ratings. It not only helps to standardise practices and minimise contamination by having one at each station, but also reduces accidents thanks to its hidden razors. Plus, being dishwasher safe, it can be disinfected at temperatures of up to 90Â°C."
