Bottom shelf: Raw meat, anything that is uncooked (this must be wrapped properly and kept safely away from cooked foods to avoid cross contamination).

Bottom drawers: Fruit (1 drawer) , vegetables & salads (1 drawer).

Side enclosed shelf: Any foods with strong smells that could penetrate and ruin other foods (blue cheese, chorizo). Raw food should not be kept in this part of the fridge.

Side Open Shelf: Condiments (This can often be the warmest part of the fridge so non-perishables work best here). Raw food should not be kept in this part of the fridge.
