Food Preparation and Storage for Aged Care Facilities  

When you are preparing meals for a vulnerable portion of the community, you must take safe food preparation and storage into consideration.  

At Pac Food we’ve got a number of products which can help to create delicious meals safely and in a cost-effective way.  

1. Cook Chill Bags and Equipment 

Our Cook Chill Bags and Equipment can help extend the shelf life of wet foods like sauces, and soups.  

Using this method, which you can find more about here, you are able to safely create a larger quantity of a wet dish in one go.  

That means your commercial kitchen is saving time and money cooking in bulk and less frequently – even when you’re feeding plenty of mouths. 

2. VFFF (Vertical Form Filling Film)  

We also offer film which is used for vertical form filling – an assembly-line process for packaging items.  

These machines make plastic packages out of the film, which are then able to store both solid and liquid items safely.  

Our prices for our vertical form filling film are competitive, and if you have any questions, please reach out to our customer service team who are always willing to help. 

3. Vacuum Sealing Bags (Commercial) 

Vacuum Sealing Bags (Commercial)

Keeping food fresher for longer is imperative in every commercial kitchen, including aged care facilities, which is why so many people choose our vacuum sealing bags. 

These bags are available in a number of sizes and thicknesses, depending on what food you’re storing and packaging. 

And, if you need your order in a hurry, you can get your hands on our high-quality vacuum sealing bags quickly as we’ve got several warehouses across the country.
