Indonesia: Paradise for the Culinary Business

With more than 7,000 culinary businesses in Indonesia, it’s no wonder that the tongues of Indonesian consumers are very spoiled for various foods and beverages. The culinary business plays an important role in contributing to Indonesia’s economy as a whole. Therefore, it is not surprising that the demands and expectations of visitors continue to increase, especially for business owners to be able to maintain food quality, freshness of production, display or presentation of food and beverages, and the atmosphere of restaurants, which cannot be separated from being a part that visitors often evaluate.

In many restaurants and cafés, decoration and aesthetics play an important role in drawing visitors in. New trends in the culinary industry, such as restaurants serving Gastronomic cuisine, artisan food, and gourmet dining, have also raised the prices of the food you’ll pay for.

With more expenses spent on a meal, it’s no wonder that visitors expect every culinary business owner to pay more attention to the hygiene, cleanliness, and safety of the food and beverages served. Incidents such as food poisoning, the presence of cockroaches pest in food, or rodents running around restaurants are extreme cases that affect business reputation. Social media, online forums, and blogs are becoming platforms for unhappy and dissatisfied consumers, and the impact can turn into a virus and quickly damage businesses and brands.

We all know that the level of daily food consumption and the preparation process are very susceptible to pests. Every culinary business owner must ensure there is a quality, adequate, and responsive pest control service that helps the business owner control any pest problems. Understanding: how can cockroaches, ants, and flies be attracted to wandering the restaurant area? Why did it happen? What is the trigger for the arrival of these pests? Pest control services that fully understand the nature and diet of these pests are needed.

The first step is to identify signs of pests, understand practical steps on how to store foodstuffs properly, and maintain kitchen cleanliness and sanitation at all times.

Government regulations require and standardise every culinary business to ensure there is an inspection of the quality of the cuisine served to visitors. The culinary business should not be tolerant of every risk that may arise from pests, resulting in financial loss or fines. 

Of course, running a culinary business not only focuses on worker costs but also the costs incurred for operational management. Non-food safety issues, such as visible pests around restaurant areas, can be minimised if an integrated pest control program is in place to manage the pest-free food environment.
