A cut above the rest for gluten-free and other dietary requirements
Purple colour alerts staff to follow special food allergy procedures to protect guests from allergen exposure
With an increased prevalence of food allergies and special dietary requirements, now thought to affect around one million adults, being able to cater for people with allergies and intolerances can be big business and may one day become the law. The gluten-free market alone is worth an estimated £1 million a year to caterers. The San Jamar Saf-T-Grip® Allergen Safe Zone Cutting Board helps raise staff awareness and implement procedures to minimise the chance of allergens reaching diners with food allergies, protecting both the customer and the business’ reputation.
The purple Saf-T-Grip® Allergen Safe Zone Cutting Board is a simple but effective approach to safe food preparation. It makes it easier to set up a preparation area dedicated to foods that must be free from contamination. The eight most common allergies are embossed on the board itself as a reminder to staff. Warnings on the board highlight the need to thoroughly clean and sterilise the equipment after use, to avoid cross-contamination.
The Allergen Safe Zone Cutting Board is part of a range of Saf-T-Grip® Cutting Boards available now. The durable Saf-T-Grip Cutting Boards, made of hardwearing co-polymer material, are designed to withstand continual high temperature commercial dishwashing without warping and have integrated anti-slip grips to provide a safe and stable cutting surface.
The boards have two other useful features. Their patented food safety hook means they can be hung to dry thoroughly. It also allows them to be carried and stored easily and hygienically, with no need to touch the surface. Meanwhile the integrated ruler allows chefs to quickly and accurately portion food.
