Reduce Waste with a Blast Freezer

Tuesday 22nd April 2014

waste foodIn recent weeks, the government has been addressing avoidable food wastage in light of the most recent annual report release. The report has shown that billions of pounds of food were wasted unnecessarily last year, which has impacted greatly on the UK’s carbon emissions. Although predominantly aimed at BOGOF (buy one get one free) offers advertised by supermarkets, which encourage people to take excess amounts of food products that are then wasted, the report has brought to light the implications of wasting food.

For those working within catering establishments, including restaurants and cafes, considering food wastage and – more importantly - ways to prevent unnecessary wastage could not only help environmentally but could also reduce stock overheads, saving money and improving potential profits. Can a blast freezer be the solution for reducing waste?

How can Freezing help reduce waste?

Freezing is a great way to prolong the shelf life of food products, without reducing the quality of the produce. Freezing produce can also improve control over your stock and productions, enabling a more streamline service to be provided to customers. Some companies offer blast freezer hire or lease options, meaning that those who do not have an equipment budget to buy a freezer outright can still take advantage of freezing produce. Blast freezers are available in a variety of sizes depending on capacity requirements and can even be positioned outside, in loading areas for example, if there is limited space within the kitchen area. Blast freezer storage units are usually lined with stainless steel, making them easier to clean and thus a more hygienic piece of food storing equipment.
