New restaurateur : how to find the right hygienic tools ?

The Regulatory Obligations of the Restaurateur 12 avril 2021

When we start catering, we do not necessarily realize that hygiene will be one of our priorities for the proper functioning and development of our business. Current legislation requires restaurateurs to follow certain standards, and it’s not easy to know how to go about it and who to trust to implement them properly.

What tools can I use to respond to the demand for French legislation ?

The paper

The first records to meet legislative standards were recorded on notebooks and sheets. Today, many restaurateurs continue to do so. This is a method, a priori, inexpensive and quite simple to set up. However, it can quickly become tedious and above all, cumbersome. Having a space dedicated to this storage in already full kitchens is therefore essential and can very quickly become a nuisance.

Moreover, if the archiving of records is not rigorous, consulting documents in the event of official controls becomes a "nightmare".

Excel file

Another less cumbersome way is the digital recording of certain data. However, as the readings progress, the Excel table will become longer and longer. Also, the Excel file will not prevent the accumulation of dirty traceability labels, unless you also report all the traceability elements in the file but this generates a waste of time. However, it will avoid the accumulation of notebooks for what remains as mandatory regulations (T ° C reading, Cleaning plan, etc.)

Digital / digital help (application)

Nowadays, many HACCP aids in application form are quite capable of meeting the hygienic standards of current legislation. Thanks to dematerialization, they make it possible to classify efficiently and facilitate the search for items during health checks. However, a minimum budget to spend each month is necessary to obtain a reliable application and really facilitate the readings essential to hygiene standards.

This budget can be quickly amortized by the time savings generated and the reduction in food waste via DLC and T ° C alerts.

Hire a hygiene professional

Current legislation requires restaurateurs to have at least one hygiene referent in their establishment. However, hiring someone with hygienic skills can ease your mind while being confident that hygiene standards will be met. A method nevertheless costly, in time for the responsible employee and in budget for the restaurant.
