Use commercial freezers to reduce food wastage

Freezing is a process commonly used within the food industry as a way to preserve food products.

Although there are some sceptics, the process of freezing does not detract from the flavour or quality of the produce and is a great way to prolong the useable life of the food. Within a commercial food industry this can ultimately reduce excessive food wastage and could save a company vast amounts of money.

 

The science behind commercial freezing

Enzyme activity is the main reason that foods spoil. Unfortunately, this is a natural process that is present throughout the life cycle of fresh produce and so it cannot be stopped. Not only do enzymes aid decomposition of food but - at the beginning stages - also ripens food making it ready to eat. The freezing process slows down the activity of enzymes which then prolongs the foods shelf life. Enzymes become less active in colder temperatures, making decomposition slower. Colder temperatures also reduce the amount of surrounding moisture, which is required by enzymes to assists growth. Without warmth and moisture enzymes cannot perform at the same rate and thus decomposition can be stagnated.

 Increased freezing capacity?

For those working within the catering industry who do not have sufficient inside freezer space, external commercial freezers may be the best solution. These freezers can offer space for twenty tonnes of food produce, enable vast qualities of stock to be saved from spoilage. Many companies offer such equipment for hire or as part of a lease contract, meaning those with limited equipment budgets need not spend excessive amounts when trying to save money.

As said, these commercial freezers can be situated outside, saving space within kitchen and preparation areas. By freezing food produce, you could ultimately save money on wasted produce whilst still ensuring freshness and quality.
