Make the most of the storage space you have in your restaurant's pantry by storing dry goods in stackable food storage containers. Plastic or stainless steel vessels are best for this type of storage, as the materials are not as heavy as glass and are also less likely to break. Choose containers with rubber or plastic air-tight seals around the edge of the lids or the mouth of the container whenever possible, to keep air out.
Arrange your stacks back to front on the shelving units, with items less likely to be used at the back. Specialty flours, grains, etc. fall into this category. Keep staple dry goods like sugar and salt at the front for easy access.
