Calculate waste food at selling price not cost price!
If you freeze food on site we guess you are planning to defrost and turn this produce into dishes to sell in the next month or two. It is therefore important to retain the quality of the food.
So often we see frozen foods with cracked or incomplete wrapping. The quality of the produce has deteriorated so badly it is only fit for the bin. This then has a negative effect on GP, especially when considering our first point.
Tip – Wrap food to be frozen carefully in freezer proof cling film, bags or containers. Use with one month of home freezing to best retain the quality of the food.
Did you know that despite some old wives’ tales, freezing food does not remove any nutrients!
