Mobile Food Preparation Units
Mobile food preparation units, or food trailers, may operate at community events but have some additional requirements to consider. In addition to the general food protection, personal hygiene, and sanitizing required of all food operations; food trailers must provide proper connections to fresh water and waste water collection containers.
- Freshwater supply lines (hoses designed for potable water) are usually white with a blue stripe. These hoses must be stored in a clean and sanitary manner.
- Waste water hoses should be black so they will not be mistaken for freshwater lines.
- All connections must be tight and leak–free.
