Beyond the legal requirements in food hygiene, standards serve as orientation. They assist in the interpretation of the undefined legal terms that frequently occur in food hygiene law. They aim to facilitate compliance with hygienically impeccable conditions in the planning, construction and handling of food in communal catering facilities. Furthermore, hygiene standards provide practical advice on the hygienic handling of food and restrictions on the production and distribution of food to certain groups of persons in communal catering.
