Is it Time to Up your Food Wrap Game?
By: Mike Nelson, Cofresco Foodservice, a division of Melitta USA
When you ask a chef ‘what’s your biggest priority in the kitchen?’ food wrap probably isn’t in the top 10, or even 20. Wrap might feel like a small detail, but a surprising 8/10 chefs say wrap is an essential tool day-to-day in their kitchen.*
If you think about how much you use, From prepping and storing, to microwaving, chilling and freezing, maybe our food wrap is more important than we first thought. Especially when it comes to hygiene and team safety versus old school loose rolls and cutter boxes.
The fact is cardboard cutter boxes and loose rolls are serial offenders when it comes to harboring germs and cross-contaminating kitchens. They’re handled a lot in service, can end up on the floor or splattered, and let’s not talk about the hassle using them and cut hands from exposed blades or slide cutters.
