Why is kitchen hygiene so important?

Hygiene is essential in commercial kitchens for a number of reasons. First and foremost, maintaining proper hygiene helps to prevent the spread of foodborne illness, which can cause serious health problems for customers and damage the reputation of the restaurant. Using biological cleaning products, which contain enzymes and microorganisms that are specifically designed to break down organic matter and eliminate bacteria and other germs, can help to ensure that all surfaces and equipment in the kitchen are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. This is especially important in areas where food is prepared, as these surfaces can be a breeding ground for bacteria if not properly cleaned. Additionally, using biological cleaning products can help to reduce the environmental impact of cleaning, as these products are typically biodegradable and do not contain harsh chemicals that can pollute water and air.
