Given the current COVID-19 pandemic situation, restaurants, cooks and chefs are looking for new opportunities that allow them to continue with their business without dying in the attempt. And the preparation of ready meals and gourmet preserves has become a clear opportunity for all of them.
More and more gastronomy professionals dare to pack their sauces or star dishes in order to reach a greater number of diners. The elimination of microorganisms via sterilization opens brand new markets without cold chain distribution, drastically increasing the consumption deadline and opening a new market beyond the walls of the restaurant.
A new business opportunity for restaurants and chefs
Cooking, pasteurization and sterilization prevent perishable products from ending up in the trash and wasting food and money. This allows you to reuse the purchase of raw material, cook it and keep it for much longer in perfect conditions for later consumption in the restaurant or to sell to third parties. Its profitability is undeniable. It represents an saving in the management of raw materials and a better organization and use of time in the kitchen, especially when the staff does not attend to the orders of the tables or in low season, since it can be used to prepare ready meals or preserves.
