Cambro 5 Steps for Proper Food Storage

Proper food storage techniques are imperative, and with Cambro, they're easy to implement. Watch this video to learn about 5 steps for proper food storage and how Cambro can help your facility fulfill each one.

65 years ago Cambro started with one product: the Camtray. One product. One skew. Today, Cambro manufactures over 13,000 products which equal 33,000 skews. Since 2005, the center of Cambro's world wide warehousing and distribution system is Cambro City of Industry, or COY facility. Located 30 miles north of Cambro's headquarters in Huntington Beach California, the COY facility boasts an impressive 320,000 sq. ft. of space that warehouses over 1 million cases of product. While its main purpose is the central warehouse for Cambro, the activity at COY includes more than you think, such as fulfilling sample request, receiving, shipping to regional distribution around the world, and shipping replacement parts. 25,000 cases of product come in every day from our manufacturing facilities, most of it from our Huntington Beach factories. Cambro manufactures and distributes products all over the world. Regional facilities like those in Germany, Turkey, India, and China all manufacture a selection of products for those markets. The rest of Cambro products sold there and all over the world come from COY. The City of Industry facility operates 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. Three shifts work around the clock. Each shift has the responsibility to pick a certain number of products and ship them out by the end of their shift. 1st and 2nd shifts also receive and put away products from our factories in Huntington Beach. 2nd shift also handles the product samples shipment. More than 3,000 sample requests are processed monthly. Samples are kept in a dust free environment in our efficiently designed sample room. With 47 dock doors, COY can accommodate inbound and outbound traffic. To process 25,00 cases ever day you need automation. Our automated warehouse system scans the bar code and then matches it up with the correct order and quantity of item that is supposed to come through. Those orders are grouped together on pallets for shipping. The pallet flow operation is where all the high moving products are warehoused several pallets deep. The equipment zipping around this massive warehouse is all electric;12 pickers and quite a few forklifts. One charge is enough for a busy shift around the warehouse. Just like 65 years ago with the first Camtray, Cambro still relies upon our employees, like the ones at COY, to make sure the products the food service industry relies on makes it to them on time.

When we store, for example, a product like tomatoes that we slice and prepare, we put them in the Cambro container with the red lid. Then, if there's a product currently on the line, the red lid is sitting on top of the container that's in the cooler, that way we know that there's product on the line and what's in the container in the cooler has not yet been put on the line. When we prepare a product like broccoli, for example, we know that one bag fits into an 8 qt. container, so that when it's washed and prepped it gets put into the container that has the red lid. Then as product diminishes while it's on the line, we'll sometimes have a smaller lid because the product will fit in a smaller container, for example, with the green lid. For products like meats, cheeses, and dairy, we use the translucent lids and we do the same procedure that we do for all the vegetables. If there's a product that's on the line, the lid stands on top of the other container that's in the cooler. When we first opened our restaurant in 2008, we sampled a variety of different containers and we found that Cambro was the superior container to any of the other ones because of the efficiency of how it all fits in the cooler and with the safeness of how the product is stored. The lids don't come undone, it's really easy to stack the product, and it keeps the product the absolute freshest. As we have used the Cambro exclusively now, we've found that our waste is under 2% for the entire restaurant at all of our locations, including our franchise locations who also exclusively use the Cambro product. For that reason, we find that food stays the freshest, it extends the life of that so that we're not throwing anything away. We don't even use expiration dates because it retains its freshness.

Food service operators all over the world believe deeply in the value of Cambro products, not only to help make their jobs easier every day, but to help store, deliver, and serve food safely to their customers. Improperly stored food becomes vulnerable to cross-contamination and compromised quality. Just having the proper lids can make a big difference. Food service operators can follow these 5 keys towards a HACCP-friendly storage system. (1) Store products in clear containers with tight-fitting lids to minimize handling and reduce risk of contamination. Another benefit is the cost-savings from food spoilage. (2) Keep all raw and cooked products separated to prevent cross-contaminated. Cover with lids rather than plastic wrap to protect contents against spills and contaminates. (3) Cover, label, and date all food storage container using dissolvable labels. This reduces the risk of harmful bacteria on sticky label residue. (4) Rotate the food using the First-In, First-Out system to ensure the oldest food is used first. (5) Maximize storage space with square containers. Cambro food storage solutions help food service operators save money and enhance their food safety efforts.

    Perfect size for when theres small amounts of something . Our staff knows to use these first. Greatly eliminates out waste and keeps us up to date on what to make more of.
    We have found that the frosted type storage containers are slightly more flexible and less scratchable than the clear so we use these most of the time for anything abrasive.
    I have experimented with several food containers throughout the years, and I have learned it is best to spend a little extra up front instead of replacing them every few months. Product has met and exceeded expectations.
    Purchased these to put juice in and they are a great product. We have had no issues with them. They are durable and with stand hot and cold temperatures very well!
    We've used other brands of food storage containers but these are the ones that hold up the best- they don't crack or chip or break, and are less likely to absorb colors and smells than other containers we've used. This size is one of the most popular in our bakery for storing pie fillings.
    Great for food storage and prep. I use it to store and brine foods for multiple uses. The larger ones are an industry standard and help out a lot in a kitchen
    We find it extremely useful to have these Cambro food storage containers in a variety of sizes. Love the fact that the lids are interchangeable on several of the sizes.
    best containers to have in your kitchen. stackable, easy to clean (dishwasher safe). best price in the market. love that different sizes fit the same lid.
    This is a great storage container especially for the price. I use it in the freezer and have had no issues so far. Definitely a good investment.
    This container is great. We mostly use it for sugar but have used it for liquids as well. We have also used it with a sous vide cooker to make yogurt, cook eggs, etc. It is a good thickness and sturdiness, and the graduations are clear and have withstood many washings. Hand washing, not machine washing.
    these 12 quart containers are perfect for storing a full cut case of cantaloupe,pineapple,broccoli,ect. can see what's in it.fair pricing. the delivery was spot on.
    Cambro always delivers a great product and the lids fit tightly too. I like how shallow and large the surface area is to cool down hot items.
    The cambro 12 qt while it is more expensive is definitely worth it. The lids stay shut and are less prone to cracking and damage than some of the other less expensive brands, the container itself holds up and does not fade.
    These containers are fantastic! They seal well and keep food fresh. I've also been able to keep my kitchen much more organized. Just remember that the lids are sold separately!
    Great size for storage of wet and dry items. The lids seems to last longer than the containers themselves, though, as the plastic of the container is a harder plastic than the lid.
    These cambro containers are the perfect thing to store our homemade soups in and they also work for pretty much any food storage. Must have
    Although the clear Cambro containers are nicer, the translucent work just fine. I use these to store a variety of things and they work great.
    All Cambro storage containers do what they are supposed to do. They are reasonably priced and hold up well. These square containers stack well too.
    This translucent Cambro is absolutely beautiful. I use it for storing salad dressings. I like how I can see the color of the liquids I store.
    This is the perfect size for leftover soups for the freezer and much easier to store on shelves. They are good for storing dry goods.
