Task: Stocktaking
At the beginning of each week I read the menu and check what stock is in the kitchen and what has
to be purchased. I give the stock list to the manager who places the order.
When the order arrives I check to make sure the delivery is correct. I always ask the delivery person
how long the food has been out of a temperature controlled environment and check the
temperature of products using a thermometer and by making sure any frozen food is still frozen and
not partly thawed. I check that cold food is 5o
C or below and hot food is 60o
C or above
I check is see the weight is correct and look for any damages to the packaging and products. If a
package or product is damaged and can’t be used I contact the supplier to arrange a replacement. I
also check the ‘best before’ or ‘use by’ date. If anything is past the use by date I contact the supplier.
When I finish checking the order I make sure everything is labelled with the food name and date
received. I then rotate any stock we have on hand to make sure we use the old stock before the
new order
