Even if your business finds itself in hot water because of an innocent and easy-to-make mistake the ramifications can be tough; below are a few tips on you can avoid dipping your business into hot water and potentially burning it forever.


Grow the ‘GRAS’ in your business


If something is ‘GRAS’ in other words it means that it has officially been deemed Generally Recognised as Safe. Generally, the term is used in the world of catering, specifically in the food prep sectors of it, and is applied by experts to any food that they consider to be safe. So, if yours is a business that deals at all with the cooking/preparing and delivery of food or drink, even if it’s just a small canteen that is only provided for your staff, you must do all that you can to keep it ‘GRAS’. One way to do so is use glass packaging jars; glass is one of the only ways to package that has been granted full ‘GRAS’ status by the FDA because of the fact it doesn’t impact food and drink in regards to additives. Finding yourself in hot water in regards to any misdemeanors in the kitchen is a very serious offense and a tough one to pull yourself out from — so if you want your business to be ‘GRAS’ you should opt for glass.
