Cook-Chill Systems are used by many types of food service organizations including Fine Dining Restaurants, Fast Food Restaurants, Restaurant Chains, Hospital Food Service Departments, School Food Service Departments, College University Institutional Food Service Departments, and Caterers. These organizations produce large quantities of consistent 'just made fresh' foods using the Cook-Chill method which gives products an extended shelf life while achieving a reduction in food and labor costs and practicing high-level safe food handling.

The Cook-Chill System that incorporates the use of skin food-grade Packaging is a major advance in prepared foods technology that ensures consistent quality in every batch, at every location, while reducing the labor required for preparation and serving. Like no other system now on the market, Cook-Chill can provide a high degree of quality and freshly cooked taste.
