One of the key principles of good food storage is to ensure that all boxes, bags, jars or containers are correctly labelled. That means having a good selection of the correct food labels in your kitchen, and having them to hand when you need them.
Food safety and regulations for commercial kitchens dictate that all food placed in storage containers needs to be correctly labelled with the date it was stored and when it needs to be used by. Food labels help you to provide this vital information so that all staff are aware of this.
However, it is not just to comply with regulations that food labels are important.
They also help you to reduce waste in the kitchen. Knowing what food needs to be used and when it was stored assists you to be more organised, meaning less food ends up in the recycling or compost bin or simply thrown away. So, in many ways, food labels can help you to be more efficient and maximise profits in the kitchen.
Our range of food labels includes colour-coded and daily labels which allow you to create clear and easy to use systems for storing and using food. Good labelling also helps you to reduce the risk of cross-contamination and keep allergens away from certain kinds of foods, which can be very important in commercial kitchen spaces.
As well as multiple different kinds of food labels, we also stock all the main kinds of food storage options. These include boxes, containers, glass storage jars and dry food storage. These all help you to organise your kitchen, reduce waste and save space.
Combine these storage solutions with an adequate labelling system and you can make sure your kitchen runs smoothly and safely. That’s why food labels are so important and why we carry such a wide range. Helping you get into good habits in the kitchen, meet compliance requirements and reduce waste, food labels are an important part of any modern kitchen.
