Freshly frozen vs. fresh - A chef's guide to making the right choice

As chefs in the foodservice industry, we’re no strangers to the eternal debate: fresh versus frozen. Traditionally, fresh produce has been hailed as the gold standard, but times have changed. Enter freshly frozen food. A game-changer that deserves a closer look. Let’s dive into why they’re not just an alternative but a smart choice for your kitchen.

Freshly frozen finishes first: breaking down the myths

  1. Less waste, more sustainability

    Less waste: Food waste is a growing concern for consumers. Freshly frozen products have a distinct advantage here. With fresh food the clock is often ticking (think 14-day shelf life), while our frozen offerings last up to two years. That’s less waste and more peace of mind.

    Total solution: Freshly frozen isn’t just a complement to fresh – you could also utilize it as a complete solution. Plus, since our products are pre-fried, you’ll save on oil too.

  2. Streamlined labor

    Say goodbye to prep hassles: Fresh food prep can be a labor-intensive marathon. But with freshly frozen options, you’re cutting out the chopping, peeling, and blanching. Our pre-fried, pre-cut, and heat-and-serve products take the pressure off your kitchen team.

    Financial relief: Labor costs add up. By opting for frozen, you’re freeing up resources – both human and financial – to focus on creativity and service.
