DC Norris Cook Chill Systems
The Cook-Chill System was developed as an economical alternative to traditional cook-and-serve methods. Food produced using the system retains the taste, texture and aroma of freshly prepared ingredients, yet may have been produced in large volumes up to 45 days in advance. The key to safe extended storage of foods is to rapidly chill cooked product through the ‘danger zone’ of 5 – 63°C, to retard bacterial growth. Products are safely pasteurised when heated to a high temperature, then rapidly cooled to slow spoilage caused by microbial growth. The key to retaining food quality, taste, texture and aroma is controlled refrigerated storage. Today, we manufacture Cook-Chill Systems for both small and large producers from foodservice (café’s, restaurants) through to those producers supplying supermarkets.
