It is vital that your takeaway restaurant is all planned well from day one. Your shop, restaurant and kitchen fittings all need to be accurate before you start. If you are going to run a takeaway restaurant then compliant, modern, reliable and efficient assets and equipment will be required such as:-

Equipment – any equipment that comes into contact with food must be kept in good repair and be made in a way that allows it to be cleaned thoroughly and where necessary to be disinfected.

Equipment for washing and drying equipment – such facilities need to be provided for the cleaning and disinfecting of work tools and equipment. Suitable equipment will include sinks with a supply of hot and cold or appropriately mixed running water with detergents and disinfectants for manual equipment cleaning, sterilising sinks, dishwashers.  Drying of equipment must not cause re-contamination. It is advisable that space is provided to allow equipment / utensils to air dry.

Equipment  for washing food – separate sinks must be provided for food preparation and equipment washing. The sinks must be provided with a supply of hot and cold running water which is of drinking quality. In smaller operations one sink may be used for both equipment and food washing, provided that both activities can be done effectively and without prejudice to food safety.

Hygiene Equipment – an adequate number of wash hand basins must be provided depending on the size and layout of your business. Wash hand basins must be located close to toilet facilities and at strategic places in the premises so that food handlers have access to them. Wash hand basins must only be used for washing hands. Materials for cleaning hands and for hygienic drying need to be provided. It is recommended that liquid soap is provided and drying facilities include either disposable paper towels, roller paper cabinet towels, warm air dryers, washable fabric towels.

Sanitary Equipment – an adequate number of flush lavatories must be available and connected to an effective drainage system. Lavatories must not lead directly into rooms in which food is handled. Two doors should provide an intervening ventilated space between the WC and food room. Food should not be stored in this space.

Ventilation Equipment – suitable and sufficient natural or mechanical ventilation needs to be provided to ensure that heat and/or humidity do not build up to levels that could compromise the safety of the food. As a target, ambient temperatures should be below 25°C. Natural ventilation in rooms where food is cooked will only be suitable in small premises where there is a low heat input into the room. Mechanically drawn air into food preparation rooms must not be drawn from dirty areas such as waste storage areas or rooms used for dirty processes such as pot wash. All parts of the ventilation system must be accessible for cleaning.

Lighting – adequate lighting needs to be provided, to enable safe food handling, effective cleaning and the monitoring of cleaning standards. Recommended illumination levels range from 150 lux in store rooms to 500 lux in food preparation areas. Glass lights should be fitted with shatterproof diffusers in areas where open food is handled.

Waste Equipment – Arrangements will need to be made for the collection of your trade waste.  Sufficient bins should be provided, bins should not be overflowing and lids must be kept closed.  The waste area needs to be kept clean and free of litter and food debris.
