health & safety

What are your staff doing to keep themselves and others safe?

We have conducted comprehensive Risk Assessments across all of our locations in London and the Cotswolds. You can view our Risk Assessment document HERE.

All of our staff have access to hand washing facilities and are encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly and often – this is key as the government continues to confirm that hand washing is the single best control measure to prevent contamination.

We have invested in hand sanitisers as additional safeguarding measures. All Daylesford staff members in our retail areas and those managing our deli counters will be wearing a face covering.

Our staff are required to follow an illness reporting procedure should they have any symptoms, in line with industry standards.

Our team is working hard to follow important safety guidelines. Please treat them with respect; we will not tolerate any abuse.

What measures are you taking to keep food production processes safe?

There are already strict hygiene rules around the production of food in this country which all food businesses must follow.

These existing hygiene controls are designed to prevent contamination of the food by any pathogens, and will therefore also aim at preventing contamination of the food by the virus responsible for COVID-19.

What measures are being taken to clean your farmshops?

We continue to clean our farmshops and public spaces regularly and thoroughly, in line with current advice, environmental controls and our existing food hygiene practices. Viruses like COVID-19 are easily killed by routine cleaning procedures such as ours.

What is the risk of getting COVID-19 from food packaging?

Although a recent study showed the causal agent of COVID-19 could persist for up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to several days on hard surfaces such as steel and plastics in experimental settings (e.g. controlled relative humidity and temperature), there is no evidence that contaminated packages, which have been exposed to different environmental conditions and temperatures, transmit the infection.

Nonetheless, individuals handling packaging, including consumers, should adhere to the guidance of public health authorities regarding good hygiene practices, including regular and effective hand-washing.

What is the risk of transferring the virus from person-to-foods/catching COVID-19 from food?

According to food safety agencies in the EU, it is very unlikely that you can catch COVID-19 from handling food. There is currently no evidence that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus.

The World Health Organization similarly advises that the likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low. The risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also very low. However if you have concerns you could wash or safely dispose of external food packaging before storing it in your home.

As is the case for any contact surface contaminated by an infected person, be it a door handle or another surface, food could also lead to indirect contamination through touching it. This is why everybody should follow the recommendations of public health authorities on the washing of hands.
