To provide feedback on FSA’s Kitchen Life 2 project being led by Basis Research Ltd.
The working group continues to support the innovative, cross-cutting, and multi-disciplinary research project Kitchen Life 2 (KL2), which aims to better understand kitchen behaviours in domestic and commercial kitchens. The KL2 pilot study was completed in July 2021. Waves 1 and 2 of fieldwork are complete, with 22 households and 14 food businesses being filmed and analysed so far. Wave 3 is underway, and Wave 4 taking place in summer 2022. There will potentially be a Wave 5 in Autumn 2022. Following fieldwork completion, analysis will focus on key risky behaviours. A handbook of behavioural interventions will be produced, using the COM-B framework to identify the main barriers and levers to hygienic practices, and to identify where behavioural interventions may be most feasible.
