Bacteria Bite Business

The FSA's Bacteria Bite Business video demonstrates the importance of good food hygiene, focusing on the 4 Cs (Cleaning, Cooking, Chilling and Cross-contamination). This is now available to view online.

The film shows kitchen staff, in a surreal café setting, making the mistakes that can lead to food poisoning. It also tells viewers what to do to make sure food will be safe to eat.

Watching the video is a fun way to introduce people to the basics of food hygiene, and also to remind more experienced people of how important it is to practice good food hygiene at all times.
