Wandering around a shopping strip or food court have you ever wondered about the quality and safety of the enormous range of food on offer? In NSW the responsibility for enforcing food safety rests with the Safe Food Authority and a quick look at their web site will cause you to think again. Perishable food must be displayed for sale at temperatures inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria. Have you been served lukewarm food or a sandwich that is not cold? Imagine the danger or at the least, a painful stomach bug.
Catering Equipment Direct Pty Ltd have the experience and knowledge to assist retailers select the refrigerated display equipment or heated displays that will maintain the safety of their food and enhance the merchandising and therefore, volume sales and profit. Equally, food must be stored correctly which is where Catering Equipment Direct can supply and service storage refrigeration, including large energy efficient stainless steel refrigerated cabinets or cool rooms - either custom built or prefabricated.
That experience and knowledge has come from 15 years of owning and operating independent supermarkets which included butchers shops, delicatessens, bakeries, fresh fruit & vegetables and liquor shops. We have also been involved in restaurants, function and wedding venues for over 5 years. In addition we have owned Catering Equipment Direct Pty Ltd or similar businesses selling and servicing commercial refrigeration and catering equipment for 14 years.
For refrigerated perishable food the temperature must be less than 5°C at all times. For hot food the requirement is greater than 65°C. Meat and delicatessen products present special risks requiring strict compliance with temperature. Catering Equipment Direct supply the best refrigerated display cabinets available and as value for money, recommend the Eurocyer Spring Refrigerated Display Cabinets. The Spring is a modern curved glass easy to clean display that will maintain meat and delicatessen products below 5°C and are usually set to run at 1°C to 3°C.
Eurocryer heated displays matching the refrigerated displays will keep food at 65°C, adding real class and profit to the butcher, delicatessen, sandwich shop or cafe. We recently supplied and installed a line up of Spring Refrigerated Display Cabinets including a 90° corner unit for Michele’s Delicatessen at Miller in Western Sydney. The Owner, Michele, is delighted with the refrigerated displays, which she feels will give her a competitive advantage. The installation also included a refrigerated sandwich bar which displays and functions exceptionally and has produced a great profit result.
Catering Equipment Direct also provide heated and cold displays for bakeries, cake shops and coffee shops. Brands include Milan, Tecfrigo, Criocabin, and Vienna. Of course, all these will maintain the required temperatures, providing they are installed in the right environment.
Catering Equipment Direct is happy to visit your site and recommend the most suitable refrigerated or heated display to suit your business need, budget and environment. Do not risk making your customers sick and harming your business profit because your refrigerated or heated display is not meeting safe food guidelines.
