Codex Catering Guide

Link to the 'Codex Guide "Code of Hygienic Practice for Precooked and Cooked Foods in Mass Catering CAC/RCP 39-1993' added to the Food & Water Standards in the Resources Area.

This Code has, as far as possible, been made consistent with the format and content of the General Principles of Food Hygiene.

The need for this Code is based on the following considerations:

1. Epidemiological data show that many outbreaks of food poisoning are caused by food produced in mass catering.
2. Large-scale catering operations are particularly hazardous because of the way the food is stored and handled.
3. Outbreaks can involve large numbers of people.
