The sous vide method of cooking started in the 1970s and has been gaining acceptance ever since. It’s now rare to find a top-grade kitchen that doesn’t use the method to some degree or other.

Restaurants don’t set out to waste food. As one of an operator’s biggest costs, discarding food is like throwing out cash.

The use of condiment holders in foodservice has exploded in recent years as fussy consumers demand more options to customize their food and beverages.

Add alt-milks, tea bags, various sizes of to-go cups and lids, stir sticks, napkins, sleeves and straws and you end up with a pile of items of various sizes that all need a home.
With counter space and table space at a premium, organizing your condiments and sourcing the perfect container for each one is a big job. Get it right, however, and you’ll make life easier for staff and customers.

Meal kits are big business.
In early 2020, that year’s meal kit market in Canada was estimated to exceed $400 M. The estimate for the United States required a different letter of the alphabet, at over $2 B. Meal kits are big business, and those numbers didn’t even take the full effect of increased demand during the pandemic into account.
Projections are for the market value of this service to grow vigorously over the next few years. If this whets your appetite for a bite of the market, why not step up to the table? While the multinational players in the meal kit industry may come to mind first, there’s no reason that local eateries can’t get a slice (or, more aptly, a sliver) of the pie.
