Keeping Poultry And Fish FreshBy Penny Lane
When you own a business, especially a business that deals with food such as fish or poultry, you are going to need a way to get those products from point A to point B. Whether you are a restaurant, where you will have people who want to take their food home as leftovers or you are a catering company that often transports food and sometimes over long distances, you will be in need of wax packaging, seafood packaging, and poultry boxes. They are boxes specifically made for that type of food to make it fresher longer and they do not leak because they are covered in wax on the insides. That way, your customers can put the boxes in the car without having to worry about food leaking out of the boxes.
Depending on what kind of fish or meat you are transporting, certain things will go bad before others and it is important that you package up the meat properly to avoid any food poisoning. Since we are talking about meat and fish, however, any of it will go bad if it is not properly stored and it will go bad fast. If you cater and you run your own business, making sure your clients get the best food is number one on your priority list. If you make a mistake once, it could be a big problem for your company and those people will tell their friends about the bad experience that they had.
If you are a customer and you buy the food from a meat or fish shop, it is crucial to get it home right away and get it into the fridge or the freezer. The biggest mistake people make is they go grocery shopping, leave all of the groceries in the car, and then do other shopping completely forgetting about the food already in the car. If you do this and still eat the meat, even if it is cooked after, it can create some major health issues and that is something that no one wants to deal with.
Everyone knows that when you transfer meat or things that can easily go bad, it is important to take precaution. If you notice that there is leftover fish in your fridge from dinner a week ago, the fish is probably not good anymore and needs to be thrown away. Making sure you clean out your fridge once a week or so can ensure that no one goes along and munches on something that has already gone bad.
Boxes that are specifically made for food such as these can be a great investment for your company or business because people will not be upset when they put food in their car and realize that it has started to leak everywhere. Some boxes even have areas where you can put a date on it so that you know exactly how old it is. If not, you can always write it on the box with a permanent marker which is a good habit to get into anyway.
