The soup or gravy can be put into special plastic bags or containers of different capacities, depending on customer requirement, then sealed.

Step 3 - Cooling

Firex Cook and Chill Food Processing Line For Soups And Gravies | The benefits of the Cook&Chill system

What are the benefits of the Cook&Chill system?

Streamlining of work processes: The process of food production no longer depends on meal times, therefore it can be spread evenly throughout the day and week, avoiding busy and quiet periods typically connected with these times.

The processing can also be done according to type of dish, by planning to cook similar products on the same day that results in maximising the productivity of each machine.

Efficient usage of raw materials: reduced raw material wastage, optimisation of supplies and stock, and production of semi-finished products.

Optimal usage of equipment: it is possible to make the best use of the equipment available thanks to fewer cooking cycles.

Less nutritional values lost: food products produced with the cook and chill system have greater nutritional and organoleptic qualities than those produced with the hot-hot system.

Food safety of the product: bacterial growth at temperatures between +10°C and +65°C is reduced to a minimum due to the rapid temperature drop.

It extends product life without the addition of preservatives.
