Unregistered Food Premises Hygiene Management in Urban City Ampang Selangor
Current Journal of Applied Science and Technology,
Rapid development in Ampang, Selangor area has a impact on the environment. The increase in the number of immigrants from outside with food operators from neighbouring countries demands dynamic and quality food premise management. A total of 145 unregistered food premises were detected to operate without food hygiene monitoring by the Local Council and District Health Department in the study area. The quality of food presented to customers is plays an important role in curbing the spread of epidemics such as food poisoning, diarrhea, leptospirosis, salmonellosis and other foodborne illnesses. The analysis result of Pearson Coleration showed that all the variables between knowledge had a significant relationship with the attitude of the food operator (p <0.05). The findings showed a significant relationship between knowledge and attitude (r = 0.310, p <0.05). The results showed that the presence of unlicensed food premises would damage the scenery 71.9 percent and destroy the aesthetic value of the city 28.1 percent. The development speed should be in line with the hygiene of food premises, especially in the rapidly developing township.
