A team in charge of supervising restaurants in Huye district has revealed that storing different food stuffs in one fridge destroys the foods natural flavor.
This applies to the people who run restaurants and other eating places, who keep food in refrigerators to prevent it from going bad.
One of the members says: “we have visited restaurants and other entertaining places in Butare town but the results are shocking. In some places, one fridge stores different kinds of food which is not hygienic.”
“Preserving different dishes in one place, makes them lose natural flavor. For instance chicken refrigerated next to goat’s meat will not taste like it would when kept in a separate fridge,” he adds.
Restaurant, bar, motel and hotel owners are advised to have enough fridges and freezers so that food is stored differently. Alternatively, they are advised to buy little food that is consumed and gets finished in a day.
