fridge & freezer temperatures
Keeping fridges and freezers at the correct temperature is critical to ensure good food safety during storage.

Food should be stored in a fridge between 1°C and 5°C to allow a margin of error below the legal standard of 8°C

Food stored in a freezer should be regularly rotated and stored at between -18 as bacteria will not grow at these temperatures.

safe food temperatures
To prevent food poisoning, it is essential to kill bacteria. Most bacteria are killed quickly at between 75 to 100°C. The danger zone is between 8°C and 63°C where bacteria will grow rapidly. Therefore it is important when microwaving food that there are no cold spots in the food, likewise when reheating food or sauces that the food is reheated above 75°C. Click here to download Safe Food Temperature Chart
