Doha Municipality will soon launch an awareness programme for employees of food establishments, Nasser Ibrahim Al Malki, head of food inspection at the Doha Municipality, said. Al Malki said the campaign is aimed at giving simple but useful information on food infection, food poisoning, individual hygiene and healthy behaviour. Another topic to be covered is proper washing of food utensils and hands before handling food, which is an essential part of measures to prevent food infection. The awareness programme, which will be launched soon in all food establishments, will involve distribution of flyers, which will guide people to lead a hygienic lifestyle. The brochures will provide information on maintaining hygienic conditions in the kitchens of these establishments, on food spoilage and storing food properly. The initiative will also include an exhibition of banners showing the steps to be taken to handle food properly from preparation to storage.
