Food is an essential part of everyday life, and catering service providers solve the issue by producing the food in bulk quantity and serving it to the people. Now, to produce the dishes according to the menu, raw or semi prepared food items are required for catering service providers. It will be difficult task to produce all the dishes from the raw food material for any caterer, so having semi prepared dishes like curry, dal or sambhar can be really good. It not only saves time to prepare the fresh food but it also helps in saving labour cost.
Maintaining food safety and hygiene according to the standards is a challenging task, especially in the hospitality sector. Before cooking anything, chef has to ensure that food is edible and would not create any health hazards for the customers; but with the increased rush and pressure to deliver food quickly, these standards are hardly followed. Health department has been really active since last few months in India, health inspectors randomly check even 3 star and 5 star hotel kitchens to check food and kitchen feasibility. If health department finds any problem in the hotel’s kitchen, they might have to pay the fine, and it can seriously damage hotel’s brand image.
