Baba Statement on Coronavirus
The recent coronavirus outbreak has no doubt caused some concerns to businesses, with larger scale meetings & events being cancelled.
From our perspective, it is business as usual and would like to put our clients concerns at rest.
Please see the following statement from Babaganoush Managing Directors -
Being a fully audited catering company, we adhere to strict personal hygiene training with every member of staff - hand washing is imperative and we take this seriously, ensuring staff do this thoroughly after every task and each break time and avoid touching their face. Staff will be told to stay home if suffering from any sort of contagious symptoms and we complete return to work forms for those who have been away on holiday or returning to work after being sick.
As always, the NHS advice to 'catch it, bin it, kill it' stands and we know that as long as we continue to stick to these standards of hygiene, we will continue to operate as usual.
Following the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we have implemented further procedures in place as per the government guidelines, we follow the PHE rules as standard, whilst also making sure we are aware of new recommendations and developments:
According to the European Food Safety Authority
‘There is currently no evidence that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus.’
We would encourage our clients to rest assured that we are taking all the necessary precautions and more to ensure business continues without disruption, with health and safety continuing to be at the forefront of our operations.
