Colour coded chopping boards have become a regular sight in most professional kitchens due to ongoing changes with Food Safety guidelines and legislation.
Our colour coded chopping boards are designed with food safety in mind, each food group having a designated colour which helps to prevent cross contamination and potential food poisoning. The most widely recognised colour coded system is as follows:
Red - Raw Meat
Yellow - Cooked Meat
Blue - Fish
Green - Salads and Veg
Brown - Root Veg
White - Dairy Products
Using a colour coded system such as the one outlined above is one of many steps which can be taken in your kitchen to improve the level of hygiene during food preparation.
Chopping boards are not the only items to follow a colour coded system in the kitchen. Chefs knives and cleaning cloths have also been designed in accordance with this colour coding theory, helping to reduce cross contamination even further.
