Maintaining Sustainability in Your Operation

Even in the best of times, sustainability can be a challenging factor heaped onto the daily bustle of cafe and restaurant owners. When operators need to take inventory, source food, and budget expenses, it can seem like a lot to ensure all recycling and sustainability efforts are met.

Amidst COVID?

As if owners, operators, and managers didn’t have enough on their plate, COVID-19 has created the additional enormous tasks of overhauling take-out programs, dealing with restrictions, and facing occupancy issues. As daunting as it may seem, sustainability efforts are vital now more than ever for restaurants and cafes. COVID has led to the setback of many sustainability efforts as a renewed need for plastics such as bags and single-use PPE items take the front seat. It is incredibly important to keep your business sustainable to care for the Earth and your community by taking the steps below. 

Keeping sustainable

As a decision-maker of your business, the responsibility lies with you to revisit your sustainability efforts and do a once-over of your eco-friendly habits. 

  • Manage Waste by taking out anything that can be reused, recycled, or composted is a cost saver and an easy way to improve sustainability
  • Source food from the right places. Finding quality ingredients from community-minded companies will go a long way in building partnerships with the right people.
  • Keep your community and staff included and welcome new ideas. Being a part of your community’s efforts to become more environmentally friendly and people-oriented will make your company better equipped to handle anything. 
  • Make small changes when you can. Making small changes like switching to more energy-efficient lightbulbs sends the right message to your community and customers.

What are the benefits?

The benefits of keeping sustainable are simple — you put your brand in a positive light while showing your staff and community that your business cares. Taking care of the environment can decrease expenses and offers the best way forward as a business leader.

The Benefits of the IQF Process

Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) foods use a flash-freezing process to preserve food at the height of ripeness to ensure fresh flavor in every bite. Produce such as peas, corn, berries, and peaches are common IQF foods.

Explaining IQF

The IQF process involves sending food pieces through a cold blast that flash freezes the food pieces individually. Packaging occurs after freezing, so they will remain individual pieces instead of freezing together. IQF works because it forms smaller ice crystals that are not damaging to the cells in the food product.

Benefits

There are several benefits to using IQF foods. Efficiency is one of the top benefits, and IQF provides a solution to maintain the shelf life of fresh-tasting produce. IQF is also a healthier alternative because flash-freezing produce at the peak of ripeness preserves nutrients typically lost by the time the food reaches the consumer.
