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.

    great containers container storage food storing Cambro love sugar ingredients
    We bought these very versatile containers for our vegan catering food business. We use these containers to prepare salad dressing and hold hot sauces and also use them as storage containers. You cannot beat the price anywhere else.
    This is a sturdy container with air tight lid, a perfect size for home pantry shelves as well as commercial uses. I use mine for storing various sugars. The top snaps on snugly.
    What is not to love about Cambro? These are great for anything in the kitchen. We use them to mix out flour and eggs they are awesome
    These are a great quality container that holds up to very heavy daily use and washing. They don't easily stain and they make storage much easier.
    Cambro is quality. 12qt is good size for specified tasks. Measurement numbers hold up fairly well thru many washes. Containers stain easily but clean up just as well.
    These containers are awesome! We love that you can easily stack them, which makes for better use of space. We store different sugar and salts in this container. It's a tight seal which allows no air to get into the container keeping whatever product in the container fresh.
    I bought 2 of these to hold brown sugar and powdered sugar in, seals tightly but I do miss the handles that come on the bigger buckets.
    Just like the 2, 4, 6 & 8 quart versions, this 12 quart translucent food storage container is a great addition to the kitchen. It makes measuring, storing and identification so much easier.
    I love these containers! I use them for cat food, popcorn, and oatmeal that I buy in bulk. They stack nicely and keep those items fresh. I would definitely buy them again.
    Excellent Product!! Super happy of buying them!! now my walk-in refrigerator looks very nice and organized. All my soups & sauces are safe and cover.
    love the brand and the quality of these containers. Was purchasing at my local restaurant supplier, but found them on here for a fraction of the price!
    I have many years working on restaurants. I know the 12 qt round white food storage container is the perfect size to storage many products, perhaps is a must have in any restaurant.
    Cambro always makes good products, this one is no different. I use these buckets for my pizza sauce but they could be used to store veggies,lettuce,etc. Very easy to clean.
    Love this big container! It holds a lot of food! I also bought the lid and they are both very strong and sturdy. I would recommend this!
    We use these bins to store fresh roasted coffee bins in. They keep the coffee air tight and fresh. They are very durable and could handle a lot in the kitchen. We plan to buy bigger ones too!
    I have two of these and probably should get a few more. The large size is great for preparing all our ground meats and storing them for short periods. I need some for our salads as well!
    We use these to store our buttercream and they are the perfect size for a decorator to keep on their table and work from. Love them!
    Cambro RFS12148 12 Qt. Round White Food Storage Container is good for storage cake icing and easy to clean. The container does not stain at all.
    We use these in the bakery for storing expensive dry ingredients like nuts and for storing liquids because the lid seals positively. I figure if we have saved ourselves one ingredient spill of a pound or two of product, then the container and lid have paid for themselves. One time someone knocked one of these over when it was full of cold-brewed coffee but the lid stayed on, saving us the task of cleaning up over five gallons of coffee.
    We've been using Cambro 12 quart containers for 4 years and have been quite pleased. They are durable and hold up well to freezer storage and refrigeration storage.
    12 qt sized conatiners are great for all kinds of things. We use them for larger batches of dough, as you can easily scrape them out, and storing ingredients. One star deducted for the square ones saving space in storage.
    I absolutely love these containers! They work great for storing dry goods or cheese and the cambro lids fit perfectly. i will be ordering more!
    Great containers super durable, works good with hot and cold applications. We use them for lots of stuff and they stack which is awesome! I highly recommend this product.
    These containers are great. We keep our prepared meat in them. The white containers are a little more durable than the clear ones. We are very happy with them and they last us a long time.
    Purchased the Cambro food containers to store prepped veggies, cold pastas and dry products for my restaurant. These are perfect and are able to keep the food fresh in my walk in.
    This is exactly what we needed! This is perfect for measuring out water for our dough recipe, without being to big or bulky to deal with.
    I needed large buckets to hold flour, sugar and confectioner sugar for my in home bakery. The price for these was great! I've found them to be much more expensive elsewhere. I use this smaller size to hold brown sugar and cake flour since I don't buy as big of a quantity.
    Great multi purpose buckets for measuring ingredients or storing things. We have several in different sizes for every purpose you can imagine. Great quality and great prices.
    I bought this for sugar, and ended up selling it to my mother. She was visiting me and thought they were great. I will be buying the 22 qt to hold my flour.
    We use these to store rice and flour. When full of rice (25#) they can be safely handled by a relatively small person. The short, wide design makes the containers versatile and convenient. I have re-ordered.
    The 12 qt white storage containers are great. I bought 4 and they are great for transporting food from my kitchen to my catering events.
    We use a large amount of baking ingredients and need to have a large container to keep them in. This container is ideal for storing and getting the ingredients out without creating a mess all over the counter.
