How to increase profits in the food business? By making better use of the foodstuffs you use daily. Store unused foods to a high standard and extend the time you have to use them; this way there’ll be less spoiled food you’ll need to throw out. See below, to learn about other advantages of storing in Gastro vacuum containers.
Why is it better to store foodstuffs in vacuum containers?
Vacuum prevents the effect of oxygen on foods. By limiting oxidation, you are also limiting the development of bacteria and mould. This makes food keep longer and preserves its aroma and freshness. The shelf-life and freshness of vacuum-stored foods are extended by four times giving you four times as much time to use up your foodstuffs; this way you’ll throw away less unused food, which would deteriorate far quicker in unsuitable storage. Apart from extending the food’s shelf life, vacuum is also a great solution for preventing food contamination in the pantry and cold storage room, as well as preventing aromas from spreading and mixing.
Why choose Status restaurant-grade containers made of exceptionally high-quality Eastman Tritan plastic?
