Hello, I’m the health and safety manager at Eggfree Cake Box where we are doing everything in our power to protect our staff, products, and customers as we reopen for business.
We have always prioritised an excellent food safety management system to ensure that we produce cakes that are not only delicious but safe to eat.
The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic have forced us to rethink the way we do things. And we have examined and adapted the Government, NHS and industry guidance to remodel our business effectively.
Following many and various media discussions we are reopening in stages with minimal risk to our staff and customers.
Here are some of the measures we implemented; we engage with food delivery platforms such as Uber Eats, Just Eat and Deliveroo to get our cakes to our customers all safely packaged. Social distancing where possible. New PPE such as face masks and shields for everyday use. Added extra cleaning and sanitising measures especially for high touch point areas and educated all our staff on the new safe methods of working supported with additional signage.
In our shops you will see posters informing our customers and staff of our new rules, visible two meter floor markings both internally and externally, frontline staff wearing masks and/or face shields and sneeze shields at our shop counters.
