How can I organize my food storage shelves?
To run a tight restaurant business, organization of your food supplies is key. Food storage shelving should be kept clean, not overcrowded, and above all you should be able to find what you need fast.
- Organize your products by type -- baking, cooking, condiments, etc.
- Make sure all items are labeled.
- Turn labeled items so that their label is facing out.
- When you restock, put newer items at the back of the shelf, behind the older ones. Use older items first.
As a general note, regularly check expiration dates on all food products. Even if it's a day off, get rid of it.
