Power outages can cause a lot of inconveniences. This inconvenient situation doubles up as a crisis for the Food and Beverage industry as they go through a tough time in managing with just the back-up power supply which doesn’t last very long. At some tough times like the time when Australia suffered a severe bushfire in 2019 which killed more than 480 million animals and when over 1000 houses were charred irreparably, the power outages are bound to happen.
A power outage means that there would be no opportunity to charge your phones, no WiFi and no air conditioning. Also, some of the necessary appliances like washing machines, refrigerators fail to function due to lack of power. The biggest impact would be on the restaurants and bar where the storage of the fresh food elements and drinks under a prescribed temperature becomes a massive responsible task. Keeping the perishable edible items under no supervision of the suggested preservation method makes way to huge loss of such components. Therefore power outage and food have a strong bond as the cool storage helps to retain the freshness and the desired flavour of the respective food items.
It is very important to follow the rules of the food safety guidelines which are followed by the restaurants across Australia to keep the ingredients fresh and serve the patrons with the right kind of food with right kind of flavour and freshness.

In addition to the above points, it is always important to understand the fact that during such situations food spoilage is bound to happen. It is always advisable to check before using any stored fruits, vegetables and eggs to understand their quality prior to serving them for the patrons. It is likewise needless to say that any guest must never, ever have half baked or uncooked or even cold food plated for them. Remember the fact that they too would be experiencing the discomfort due to the power cut. It is in the hands of a perfect host of a restaurant to serve them happiness using merry ingredients and which has spices smiling on them.
