Food Service Gloves
All food-service crew that handles, prepares, or cooks food especially in restaurants are required by many health departments to wear disposable food service gloves. The food code of the United States Food and Drug Administration, as well as majority of the health departments worldwide, generally does not allow contact of bare hands with food, and with good reason. Hygienic food preparation calls for handling of food using foodservice gloves in order to avoid potentially contaminating food served to diners with harmful pathogens such as germs, bacteria, fungi, and other contaminants. Food service gloves are meant to protect your guests and diners from food-borne illnesses.
However, in addition to protecting diners from potential food-borne pathogens, you should also protect your employees, especially those who have allergies to latex or rubber gloves. Some workers can actually be allergic to latex, caused by allergenic proteins in the latex itself. Allergic reactions can range from coughing and sneezing to rashes on the face as well as allergic reactions like severe itching and breaks on the skin that comes in direct contact with the glove.
Here at Rapids Wholesale, we have polyethylene and vinyl disposable gloves and latex-free food service gloves available so you can make sure that you are protecting not just your guests and diners from harmful food-borne contaminants but also your employees as well from potential allergic reactions they might suffer from while wearing latex and rubber gloves.

Hair nets for food service should be a must if you run any restaurant or food-service business. Nothing is more embarrassing or damaging to a food-service establishment than your diners or guests finding a hair in their stew, soup, or broth.
Needless to say, all food-service staff or crew is required by law to wear food service hair nets to avoid contamination of consumer food products by the food-service crew that are handling them. It is not surprising, therefore, that restaurant hair nets are mandatory in food preparation and processing areas of food-service establishments. Here at Rapids Wholesale, our food service hair nets help you balance a professional appearance with meeting hygienic and sanitary requirements.
Food service aprons are used for aesthetic, professional, and hygienic purposes. They are used by food-service crew as part of their uniform, to help protect them from hot oil and certain chemicals, and to prevent their clothing from being splattered with liquids that can potentially leave stains on their clothes.
