Finding An Industrial Freezer to Suit Your Needs
Selecting an industrial freezer that is suitable for your catering business should be a primary concern. In an industry where profits and overheads must be carefully monitored at all times, food spoilage is one of the greatest areas of waste.
Why an Industrial Freezer is important
Freezing food correctly is imperative in the catering industry. It must be done in a timely manner but also by using effective equipment.
Freezing your food is essential for a variety of reasons. Firstly, it is an important safety consideration. By freezing your food, you are helping to ensure that there is no spoilage that could be a danger to staff or paying customers.
Food can quickly become out of date or unusable. This leads not only to wasted produce and lost money, but can also lead to sickness in worst case scenarios if the food is accidentally prepared and served. An effective industrial freezer helps to ensure that this is never the case.
It keeps your food fresh, and your customers happy.
Another reason to freeze your ingredients effectively is for overall cost-effectiveness. There are times of the week and even times of the year that are especially slow and when demand may be lower. Freezing high quality ingredients helps to keep them pristine when the time comes to use them.
Many restaurants and catering services — from the smallest independent start ups to the largest operations — can lose the most amount of money through wasted ingredients. Effective freezing is helping to make this a thing of the past.
Choosing the Correct Equipment
Selecting a freezer that is right for you and your business is an important process. The one that is suitable for you depends on a variety of factors.
First of all, consider your budget. Catering equipment is one of the most expensive aspects of running a food business. You should consider whether you want to buy a new item or would be happy to purchase a fully refurbished, upgraded model for a fraction of the price.
Our equipment is reconditioned by trained engineers to the very highest standards, so you can be confident in the quality. If you are purchasing second hand then ensure you have selected a reputable provider.
Next it is important to consider the size of industrial freezer that will be the most suitable for you. This depends of course on the amount of space you have available at your premises, but there are other considerations too.
You should also consider the number of customers you are likely to be serving at any one time and just how much space you are likely to need for ingredients. Catering businesses regularly find that it is best to have a little too much space than not enough! But pick as closely as you can.
There are also a variety of models to choose from that come down to your own design preference and what you would consider most convenient.
For example, you may select a double door freezer for ease of access if you have the space on the premises and need the extra freezing storage. A single door freezer may suffice for a smaller space or a smaller business.
You may also prefer to look at under counter freezer options that are convenient and affordable, especially for smaller businesses and premises. Blast chillers are also a freezing option depending on what is most suitable for your service.
For additional freezing needs, it is also possible to install walk-in cold rooms. These can range from dual fridge freezer rooms, to small walk-in chilled sections or a larger scale warehouse style of walk-in freezer.
Whatever your needs, budget, and size specifications, there is a suitable solution for you.
