Safe Food Guide
SUGGESTED ACTION ON YOUR RECEIPT OF HEAL FARM GOODS
Your paperwork is included within the parcel.
Our products can be stored in the fridge for a few days (please note use by dates on the wrapping) or you could freeze almost all products - check label. See De-Frosting Guide.
If contained in trays with lids, tubs or are vacuum packed, products can be placed in the fridge or freezer as they are.
Large joints & birds are best removed from wrappings, covered lightly in fresh greaseproof and placed at the bottom of the fridge on a tray.
Note: Meats wrapped over a period of time without air around them can acquire an odour due to the anaerobic environment, especially with 'hung meats' such as beef. This will dissipate within 10-15 minutes of unwrapping.
Safe Food Handling
At Heal Farm our systems are scrupulous in food hygiene & handling and we urge you to take similar steps to avoid any possibilities of cross-contamination:
Raw meat and poultry at the bottom of a fridge and cooked items uppermost; food preparation of each on different surfaces.
With houses being largely warmer these days great care should be taken to minimise the length of time that foods are left un-chilled.
