What you need to know about Corona Virus and food

  • It is very unlikely that you can catch coronavirus (COVID-19) from food.

  • Cooking thoroughly will kill the virus.

  • COVID-19 is a respiratory illness. It is not known to be transmitted by exposure to food or food packaging.

  • Everyone should wash their hands regularly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds, to reduce the risk of illness.

  • It is especially important to wash hands before handling food or eating.




Food hygiene when shopping

The risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) cross-contamination to food and food packaging is exceptionally low. Food businesses must ensure that they have the correct food hygiene and food safety processes in place and that these are being followed to protect their customers. Here at Born To Taste we take extra measures when preparing food for our guests so you can be confident with us.


Staff handling food in shops are required to maintain a high degree of personal cleanliness and wear suitable, clean clothing. This includes regular hand washing to maintain good hygiene.


Food businesses are required to have a system for managing food safety in place, but this does not necessarily require staff to wear gloves when serving or handling food.

When you are buying loose foods such as fruit, vegetables, or bread in a bakery, try and only touch what you are going to buy.The risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) cross-contamination to food and food packaging is exceptionally low.

Food hygiene at home


Although it is very unlikely that coronavirus is transmitted through food, cooking thoroughly will kill the virus.


You should always use a food-safe disinfectant when cleaning surfaces and follow the instructions on the pack. If there is a shortage of suitable cleaning products, you can use hot, soapy water to clean these surfaces.
