Food Safety Best Practices @ and nothing else

Dear Eater of Healthy Food

If you’re a consumer of our brand, it’s clear that you care about what goes inside your body. Goes without saying then, this virus, and what it means for your food, would have you worried. And rightfully so.

While it seems that the virus does not travel through food (read this), I’m writing this blog post to assure you that at ‘and nothing else’, we’ve taken every possible step to ensure that your bars are being made with the highest standards of hygiene possible.

From scanning employee body temperatures using infra-red thermometers, to ensuring that every hand and every surface that comes anywhere near your food is sanitized every 30mins – we’re implementing every WHO recommended safety guideline with extreme discipline – every day.

Please find below an exhaustive list of ALL the precautions and best practices we’ve implemented. If you still find something we’re not doing, but we should be, please feel free to write directly to me at shashank@andnothingelse.in

These are tough times. So we’ve toughened up. Because you deserve the safest food and nothing else.

Our staff has been alerted, informed and educated on COVID-19, with training covering all emotional and physical health setbacks and hazards.

All staff members are given surgical masks, gloves and other appropriate protective gear, which are to be changed every 3 hrs.

We’ve installed Infra-Red Thermometers at both our production and operations facilities. We check the body temp of everyone who enters –  the food handlers, our staff, and any outside delivery personnel, at the time of both entry and exit.

    1. Hey there! Thanks a ton for writing in. Yes it is safe for kids (as long as you’re fine with Whey). Yes you can, and should replace chocolates with this. It’s much much much more nutritious. And no, the CRED offer is only single redemption 🙂

      Hope that help
      Cheers!
