Airbnb: what about food safety?

Airbnb's UK market share continues to rise. The number of overnight stays in relation to the total number of beds is huge. Regularly, owners make their homes available while they are away. Often these homeowners leave a full refrigerator of food for their guests. Given the strict rules in the area of food safety that hotels and official Bed and Breakfasts need to meet, it is questionable whether this is fair competition. Airbnb is a paid service, so landlords should be subjected to inspections too. According to the people behind Airbnb, all relevant laws and regulations should be complied with.

Inventory management

For all food providers, business or private, the responsibility for complying with food safety rules applies. Throwing away food that has reached the expiry date is an example. Managing wastage by making a good estimate of what you expect to serve can help reduce this. LABELLORD day labels can also help you manage your inventory and are easy to use. If you have any questions about how to apply our products, please contact us.
