The operational advantages of a central kitchen

A Central Kitchen today delivers the following operational benefits:

  • Business expansion: to use the centralized system for the production of meals to be distributed to schools, canteens, hospitals, retirement homes etc. (participation in public contracts). To use the recipe of a semi finished product (eg. sauce) as an end product to be resold in other channels;
  • Product standardization: as everything is produced in the same place, at the same time, using the same equipment, companies can guarantee greater product consistency and quality;
  • Efficiency: Central kitchens are more efficient because they allow automating the production process, stabilizing the operators’ workload and reducing the raw materials’ purchasing costs;
  • Extra income: in case the plant is not producing under the system of saturation, it is possible to rent these ares to other companies, reducing the incidence of fixed costs, as well as generating extra sales.
