Over 200 diseases are transmitted through food. In food preparation and serving areas, good hand hygiene is the main way to combat the spread of these diseases.
- Food preparation
- Food service
Food contamination creates an enormous social and economic burden on communities and their health systems. In the USA, diseases caused by the major pathogens alone are estimated to cost up to US $35 billion annually (1997) in medical costs and lost productivity.*

When employees in food preparation or serving areas do not follow hand hygiene protocols, contamination can occur. This leads to customers falling ill; brand damage, potential plant shut down, restaurant closures and in rare cases, litigation.
