The expert shelving providers at Chrome Shelves are encouraging all those looking for a food storage solution for their home or business to consider purchasing a chrome wire shelving unit. Food storage is a tricky business, and whether simply looking for a place to store packs of pasta and rice for a kitchen, or searching for a larger solution for use in the food manufacturing industry or in some sort of restaurant, it is important that the storage solution lives up to a number of important criteria.
Giles Fletcher, Managing Director of Chrome Shelves, one of the UK’s chrome shelving providers, says, “The food industry has a number of stringent rules regarding how food is stored across a number of industries, and while these rules may not be enforced in the home, it is still important that food is stored in an appropriate way. Chrome wire shelving is the perfect solution for storing food for a number of reasons, including its affordable nature, its hardwearing construction and its ability to withstand tough cleaning products that will keep foods germ-free.”
One of the main benefits chrome wire shelves have when storing food is the breathability. When storing things like fruit and veg in the wire baskets which can be affixed to the shelving units, the food is allowed to breathe in a way that wouldn’t be possible if they were stored within plastic containers. The wire also ensures that the food does not become misshapen; it is one of the most convenient ways to store food and keep it looking fresh and in great condition.
Chrome is also incredibly easy to clean and keep hygienic, which is part of a number of very strict rules in the food industry. Simply wiping it down with a hot cloth can remove superficial marks, and the chrome can withstand incredibly high temperatures and harsh cleaning products that remove all germs from the surface. The chrome will not become corroded or rusty, and can withstand whatever the cleaner throws at it.
For use within the home, chrome shelves are also incredibly functional. Shelving units can be fitted with castors to move around the kitchen if necessary, and they can be used in pantries and larders to store things like herbs, vegetables and fruit. The castors can be practical additions in a workplace such as a restaurant kitchen, where cooks and sous chefs will need constant access to ingredients for their many dishes. Whatever the environment these shelves will be used in, they are sure to add accessibility to food, whilst keeping it fresh and entirely hygienic.
