Fridges/freezers and food safety requirements help!


#1

We are about to buy a fridge freezer for the west end food hub in Newcastle, which will be located in a community centre. Before buying equipment I really need to know;

  1. Can we keep both fresh meat and fresh veg in the same fridge, if they are on different shelves/containers?
  2. What about cheese/yoghurt? Can they go in the same fridge as meat?
  3. Can frozen meat and frozen other food stuff like fruits/ soups go in the same freezer?
    Any help much appreciated!

Hi Ruth,
Great set of questions!
My understanding is that if everything is appropriately wrapped then they can go int he same fridge/freezer.
Let’s directly ping some people that will know the answer:

None of its sounds like a problem to me. The Safer Food Better Business publication available here may help.
