Food Safety

Make sure that you choose a menu to suit the weather and adapt as needed. Check that you have a reliable and safe source of drinking water. 

Storage of food and preparation are also areas with increased risk when the weather is cold. Store food carefully as hungry animals will be looking for an easy source of food.

Ensure frozen food has defrosted as required, before using. If you are cooking in mess tents, ensure good ventilation. Use appropriate fuel for the weather conditions. Please refer to the Gas Safety Guidance.
