5 Rules of Safe Food Delivery and Transport

Courtesy of DCI, Delivery Concepts Inc. 1. Temperature Matters. When transporting food, it’s essential to keep the temperature of your product constant and outside of the bacteria growth range. Bacteria is actively growing on food anytime its temperature is inside of the range of 41° to 145°. 2. Food Quality. When selling your product to a customer, their happiness is your business. Having soggy pizza crust or dry barbeque are common byproducts of mishandled food transport. Delivering food of this quality can be the difference between a repeat customer and a nasty Yelp review. You will find that doing self delivery enables you to have quality control. 3. No Excuses. People deserve to have their food handled responsibly and safely before they eat it. If there’s any doubt, throw it out. Not only will your product be better, but your customer will be happier. Get the food safely to its destination no matter the cost. Even if it’s a shorter delivery, there’s no reason to take any chances. 4. Future Legislation. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is aiming to create safer food transport. Their rules require food to be refrigerated while being transported, vehicles to be cleaned between deliveries, and have food be protected properly. 5. Deliver Safely. Restaurants and distributors should be moving product at their intended temperatures. Hot food should be kept hot until service, cold food must stay refrigerated, and frozen items can’t be thawed out during transit. All of these pose risk to the consumer and threaten your success. Temperature controlled delivery vehicles are the ideal option to ensure safe transport, but coolers or Cambro containers suffice as the bare minimum. Continues on page 88 Page 86


7 Critical Food Safety Points 1. Know the “Danger Zone” (40 °F - 140 °F) Leaving food out too long at room temperature can cause bacteria (such as Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella Enteritidis, Escherichia coli O157:H7, and Campylobacter) to grow to dangerous levels that can cause illness. Bacteria grow most rapidly in the range of temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F, doubling in number in as little as 20 minutes. This range of temperatures is often called the “Danger Zone.” Never leave food out of refrigeration over 2 hours. If the temperature is above 90 °F, food should not be left out more than 1 hour. 2. Keep hot food hot—at or above 140 °F. Place cooked food in chafing dishes, preheated steam tables, warming trays, and/or slow cookers. 3. Keep cold food cold—at or below 40 °F. Place food in containers on ice. 4. Cooking: Raw meat and poultry should always be cooked to a safe minimum internal temperature. When roasting meat and poultry, use an oven temperature no lower than 325 °F. 5. If you aren’t going to serve hot food right away, it’s important to keep it at 140 °F or above. 6. For this reason leftovers must be put in shallow containers for quick cooling and refrigerated at 40 °F or below within two hours. 7. Foods should be reheated thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165 °F or until hot and steaming. In the microwave oven, cover food and rotate so it heats evenly.
