Hospital Food Storage and Preparation Ideas

Adequate food storage is very important when you are cooking for vulnerable patients, who may have specific dietary requirements and low immune systems.

With a varying number of mouths to feed, it’s much more cost effective to plan ahead, batch cook, and store leftovers in packaging to ensure shelf life is extended.

Here are some of the top Pac Food products we find are very effective for use in Hospitals.

1. Cook Chill Bags and Equipment

Cook Chill Bags and Equipment

Our Cook Chill Bags were specifically designed a few years ago to extend the life of wet dishes like soups and sauces.

The Pac Food bags and equipment allow you to make those types of dishes in larger volumes and less frequently.

That means you can save money by purchasing food items in bulk and using (and cleaning) your kitchen less often.

Our Cook Chill Bags come in a number of sizes, have extra barrier for longer shelf life and are very strong.

Find out more about the Cook Chill method on our website here.

2. Vacuum Sealing Bags (Commercial)

Vacuum Sealing Bags (Commercial)

If you want a food packaging solution to extend the shelf life of your dry and wet food, then our Vacuum Sealing Bags will impress.

The longer shelf life is possible when you use an “in chamber” vacuum sealer, where the oxygen is removed from inside the bag.

This means you can buy in bulk, seal your items and keep food fresher for longer (including dry goods), saving your kitchen time and keeping procurement happy with reduced food costs.

3. Biodegradable Trolley Covers 

When you are delivering food to rooms around the hospital or storing items ahead of preparation or meal time, you can’t go wrong with our trolley covers.

They are freezer proof, and ensure the food is completely covered, and thus protected, in a matter of seconds.

The covers are also biodegradable, making them an environmentally friendly option when compared to cloth covers or cling wrap.

Pac Food’s biodegradable trolley covers are made out of strong, low-density plastic, meaning the trolley’s contents are visible. Easy to dispense stainless steel wall-brackets are also available to buy.

4. VFFF (Vertical Form Filling Film)

Pac Food also stocks vertical form filling film if you use this process for packaging both solid and liquid hospital meals.

We have both coextruded and laminated film available at very competitive prices.
