Facts You Should Know 

Salmonella bacteria are common organisms found throughout our environment. They can be found in water and soil, in raw vegetables, in the intestinal tract, and on the human and animal skin. Therefore, salmonella bacteria may be found in such raw foods as meat, fish, eggs, unpasteurized milk, poultry, and vegetables.

Salmonella bacteria are easily destroyed by heat, so it is essential to cook food well, to their recommended temperatures for the proper length of time to ensure complete salmonella destruction. Because chicken is not eaten rare, it is less frequently a source of salmonella bacteria-related problems..

By following simple food safety tips you can feel confident that every 'Starchik' meat you serve will be wholesome and delicious too!

Important Tips 


Enjoy your chicken as you like it, but make sure you always follow the necessary storage and cooking guidelines.
1. Always cook poultry thoroughly, not medium or rare. Salmonella bacteria are heat sensitive and are easily destroyed at temperatures of 60 degrees Celsius or more.

2. Always store raw and cooked poultry and meats in refrigerator unless preparing them.

3. Pick fresh poultry and meats just before you reach the grocery check-out counter, and refrigerate it as soon as you can. To maximize shelf life, refrigerate poultry at minus 2 - 0 Degrees Celsius.

4. In normal conditions, bacteria grows phenomenally fast and by the time the supposedly fresh chicken and mutton reaches your kitchen, it has already started decomposing. Bacterial growth leading to such decomposition can be prevented only if the chicken and mutton is 'chilled' immediately after dressing. Starchik tackles this problem by transporting chicken under chilled conditions in special refrigerated vans which deliver chicken right to your doorstep.
