1. Food Prep
Food is prepared on site or at a central location under highest quality control standards and cooked in volume.
2. Bag Fill
Upon reaching the exact degree of doneness, and while still above pasteurization temperature, food is filled directly into a Plascon Food Solutions Cook Chill bag to ensure strict sanitation.
3. Bag Seal
The Cook Chill bag is then securely closed with a heat seal system or clip closure.
4. Ice Bath
The sealed bag is immediately placed in iced water to arrest the cooking process and reduce the food’s core temperature to 40 degrees.
Food is stored refrigerated or frozen until ready to serve.
At the serving location, product can be reheated in several ways. The bag can be placed in a steamer, or simply immersed in hot water.
7. Finished Product
Aroma, taste, texture…the final presentation deliveries quality, ‘fresh-cooked’ goodness.
