Food safety codes require that foodservice businesses use commercial-grade shelving manufactured with materials to stop food absorption and food-borne bacterial growth. Long gone are the days of using wooden shelving for food storage in restaurants and commercial kitchens (and that’s a GOOD thing!).
Well-organized walk-in coolers, walk-in freezers or dry storage areas are not optional when it comes to running a successful foodservice operation. From healthcare facilities to school kitchens, and from five-star restaurants to diners, no matter the size of the operation, a busy food service facility cannot afford to not be well-organized in these critical areas.
Modular shelving can be some of the most useful equipment in your commercial kitchen. As anyone who has worked in the back-of-the-house knows, organization is critical to success, and shelving can contribute more than just about anything, especially when it can be arranged to fit the layout of your walk-in or dry storage space.
