The UK’s food safety regime is not working properly. It is failing to ensure an acceptably safe food supply. Food poisoning rates are too high; confirmed cases of the Campylobacter bacteria, for example, increased by about 46% from 2008 to 2012.

The arrival of online food delivery platforms, bringing greater choice and convenience, has revolutionized the way we purchase and consume food. The capability of ordering food for delivery with a single tap of your mobile phone, whether it be your weekly supply, a meal box or a hot and ready to eat meal is the result of a series of technological and digital innovations that have as yet to run their full course.

The Foodservice Network is pleased to announce the first full day Workshop for the creation of a new performance standard for Hot Food Display Cabinets (BSI – PAS). The workshop is being held at The British Standards Institution (BSI), 389 Chiswick High Road London, W4 4AL on the 21st of July from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.

The Foodservice Network is working with the British Standards Institution (or BSI), the national standards body of the United Kingdom, to develop a new publicly available specification BSI (PAS) related to hot food/ambient food delivery services.
