Food Safety for Schools
Serving safe food is a critical responsibility for school foodservice and a key aspect of a healthy
school environment. Keeping foods safe is also a vital part of healthy eating and a mandatory
requirement under FSSR, 2011.
TQS Global has been successfully implementing food safety programs based on SFD™ pattern to help ensure the safety of the school meals served to children across the country.
The purpose of a school food safety program is to ensure the delivery of safe foods to children in the school by controlling hazards that may occur or be introduced into foods anywhere along the flow of the food from receiving to service. We emphasize on strictly regulating nutrition standards of all food and beverages sold or served at school, including school meals, vended items and items given to students during any event or celebration based on the set nutritional and portion size limits for children on all foods and beverages. Our food safety program helps effectively control food safety hazards that might arise during all aspects of food service (receiving, storing, preparing, cooking, cooling, reheating, holding, and serving).
It controls both specific and nonspecific hazards and consist of a written FSMS plan for applying the basic food safety principles. The FSMS plans are tailored specifically for each school food operations and training are provided to the caterers. Teachers are also included in the training procedure to ensure maximum percolation of food safety guidelines for better facilitation of food safety for school children.
Food Safety for Hospitals
TQS Global introduced food safety programs for hospitals that provide potentially hazardous
food to vulnerable people. The requirement for mandatory food safety programs is part of the
Hospitals have been identified as a high food safety risk because they serve potentially hazardous foods to vulnerable people (children under four, elderly people aged 70 or over, pregnant women; and immuno-compromised people).
Vulnerable people are considered more susceptible to microbiological infection than the average healthy adult, and the symptoms and consequences of food-borne illness can be more severe. Generally, vulnerable people have weaker immune systems and it is easier for harmful microbes to get through their digestive system and invade their bodies.
Listeria infection is uncommon in the average healthy person but can be particularly dangerous for vulnerable people taking unsafe Listeria contaminated food in the hospitals. Hospital acquired Listeria is of particular concern because it is associated with high mortality rates.
TQS Global Food safety program for hospitals is also important as some most commonly served foods in hospitals have higher likelihood of bacterial contamination and are considered high risk foods. Meals including dairy products, some fruit and raw salad vegetables should be provided to hospital patients if the hospital has a food safety program that adequately manages such risk.
Food Safety for Street Food Vendors
TQS Global Food safety program for Street Food vendors focuses on "street-vended foods" or
its equivalent "street foods" which are defined as foods and beverages prepared and/or sold by vendors in streets and other public places for immediate consumption or consumption at a
later time without further processing or preparation. This definition includes fresh fruits and
vegetables which are sold outside authorized market areas for immediate consumption.
Due to vast culture and variations in socioeconomic state of affairs in India, street vended food sector has experienced significant growth during the past few decades. With escalating urbanization and population growth, street-vended foods also expand accordingly, which are largely but not exclusively an urban phenomenon.
While street-vended foods are appreciated for their unique flavours as well as their convenience, they are also often essential for maintaining the nutritional status of the population.
Street food vending assures food security for low-income urban populations and provides a livelihood for a large number of workers. Street food vending also offers business opportunities for developing entrepreneurs.
In contrast to these potential benefits, it is also recognized that street-food vendors are often poor and uneducated and lack appreciation for safe food handling. Consequently, street foods are perceived to be a major public health risk.
We at TQS Global, emphasize on ensuring food safety awareness among street food vendors through mass training program making them realize that food safety is mandatory and is attainable irrespective of the size and nature of business.
