With labor being a endless challenge and investment, restaurants are constantly adapting to streamline other aspects of operations. To put it plainly, shortcuts are the key to success in today’s environment. Granted, shortcuts can be a dirty word if resulting in an inferior product, however some shortcuts can maintain quality while simplifying back of house complexities.
No matter the foodservice segment, efficiency is the name of the game for back of house menu execution. Selecting ingredients, providing diversity in offerings, saving on labor &preparation time, and utilizing ingredients in multiple menu items, will put operators at an advantage.
Consolidating ingredient needs, reducing shrink and decreasing the labor preparation are high initiatives for operators. Food manufactures and ingredient suppliers offering high quality, shelf-stable products are helping to offset the raise in fresh ingredient and labor costs, which ultimately hinder profits.
Aseptically crafted foods provide safe, premium quality items with a convenient long shelf life and shelf stable packaging. These aseptic foods help to streamline inventory management in a way that saves money while offering guests fresh-tasting, delicious food. Aseptic technology is a process where an ingredient is continuously heated, killing any potential bacteria, then is cooled and filled into a pre-sterilized container. This process preserves food taste, texture and quality. Most importantly, it yields a consistent shelf-stable product kept on hand in dry storage, without taking up that precious refrigerated space.
