Coronavirus Effect On Events Catering in 2020
Eco-friendly & biodegradable disposables
If you require events catering there are simple and effective ways to reduce the risk of Coronavirus. Although using single-use materials are far from ideal, it greatly reduces the risk of the number of people that may have come into contact with crockery, cups and saucers which can be handled more than 30-times before it gets used by your guests. Using disposables cutlery; preferably eco-friendly & biodegradable to help work toward the UK’s target of sustainability and minimising waste.
As a company that provides events catering in Birmingham, Solihull, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and across the Midlands, we at MyDine Catering use bamboo plates and wooden crockery that are an both eco-friendly and biodegradable alternative to paper plates and plastic cutlery disposables.
Avoid catering self-service! If you have events catering onsite another preventative measure to reduce risk of Coronavirus is to have your caterers provide a fully staffed and served menu. For example, fully staffed breakfast, lunch, events and party catering reduces the number of people that come into contact with food. As events caterers, food is handled following strict health and safety measures using items such as food-safe gloves and commercial grade cleaning equipment.
Personal and Event Cleanliness

Yet general hygiene is easily forgotten about… Think about it, how many times can you remember seeing someone coughing without covering his or her mouth? Or how many times can you count seeing someone leaving restroom without washing his or her hands?
Having clear and obvious signs posted throughout your event to remind people to wash their hands and cover their mouths are easy prompts for guests.
