Camplyobacter currently affects 280,000 people in the United Kingdom each year and the bacteria is commonly spread onto hands, clothing, utensils and surrounding work surfaces from splashing water droplets, hence why the governmental department has moved to inform the general public about this unknown threat.

These plants, it is stated, convert around 100,000 tonnes of food which is fit for human consumption into biogas, according to the charity FareShare.

Buffet tableThis news may not come as a surprise to many, but many restaurant goers associate cost with quality.

So if you are thinking about lowering your prices, your patrons may suddenly decide your food is worse – even when you haven’t altered a single thing on the menu!

A new study, which was presented at the Experimental Biology meeting last week, found that the perception of taste varies wildly in accordance to the price of the meal.
