What I learned about Food Hygiene

July 13, 2009 at 6:05 pm 1 comment

Recently I attended an all-day food-hygiene course.  Every food handler is required to complete this course.  After the Geylang rojak disaster, the government has been getting stricter with its enforcement.


Generally, and thankfully, most of the information is common sense and serves as a reinforcement to what you know about food safety.

My instructor had a novel way of drilling the consequences into our head.

“What happens if you don’t maintain proper food hygiene?  The public gets sick.  Do you know who is a member of the public?  Your family.  If you don’t maintain food hygiene, YOUR GRANDMOTHER WILL DIE.”

This was the statement that concluded every section of the course.

At Standing Sushi Bar, we firmly believe in not killing grandmothers.  So rest assured we will maintain top-notch food hygiene standards.

    haha! That sounds way more effective than my Hygiene licensing course. My instructor just told us, “pay attention when I bang my hand on the table. It means it will be on the exam.” He just wanted us to pass and get out of there. But this was Hong Kong.
