Your tiny human’s health and safety (and yours) is always our top priority at Raised Real. We want to take a moment to go over our rigorous safety standards.
Q: Are you taking safety precautions?
That’s a big YES. We always take extreme precautions in terms of food safety—we are SQF-certified* (this is a big deal, you can read more about it here). We have a full disinfection protocol before and after food is prepared. All team members preparing food participate in a full disinfecting process before and after entering a room. They wear protective outerwear which includes a smock, mask, hairnet, and gloves. Employees do not report to work if they are sick. So again, a big all caps YES.
Q: Should I do anything differently in terms of cooking?
Our standard preparation instructions are designed to get the internal temperature of the food above 165 degrees— as a point of reference, most viruses cannot survive in temperatures above 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Furthermore, according to the CDC and their international counterparts, there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.
*SQF- certified: Safe Quality Food Program is a globally recognized certification program to ensure the most rigorous science-based safety procedures in food handling.
