Organise and Preserve Your Food with Premium Food Storage Solutions

When it comes to maintaining a well-organised pantry and kitchen, proper food storage is key. Food storage solutions come in many forms, from pantry jars and lunch bags to dry food canisters. At Harris Scarfe, we understand why food storage is important, and have some great tips on how to organise your food and pantry storage on our hub.

The Value Of Food Storage & Why It Matters

There are many benefits to investing in premium options for storing ingredients and leftovers.

  1. Ensuring Longevity and Freshness: Properly storing your food helps extend its shelf life, allowing you to minimise waste and save money. By using appropriate food containers and techniques, you can preserve the freshness, taste, and quality of your pantry essentials.
  2. Reducing Food Waste: Organised food storage helps you keep track of your inventory and minimise food waste, preventing food from getting forgotten or expiring. Using a food flask on the go is incredibly easy and is a great way to transport a hot meal without needing an appliance to heat it up.
  3. Saving Time and Money: By having a well-organised pantry and using effective food prep and storage methods, you can easily locate ingredients, plan meals efficiently, and avoid unnecessary purchases.
  4. Preserving Nutritional Value: Exposure to air, light, and moisture can degrade the nutritional content of your food. Appropriate storage methods help preserve essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
  5. Enhancing Taste and Flavour: Freshness plays a vital role in the taste and flavour of your meals. By storing your ingredients properly in airtight containers, you can enjoy your meal with no compromise to taste or flavour.

Food Storage FAQs

What are 3 types of food storage?

There are three types of food storage: dry storage for non-perishable items, refrigerated storage for perishable foods that need to be kept cool, and freezer storage for preserving foods over longer periods of time. We suggest considering these three tiers of food storage to mix and match your supply of food storage containers or solutions.

What is the most important rule of food storage?

The most important rule of food storage is to keep food at a safe temperature. Additionally, it is important to avoid cross-contamination by storing raw meat and poultry separately from other foods, covering left-out food when unattended with a food cover and following expiration dates and proper food handling and cooking techniques.

Is plastic or glass better for food storage?

Both plastic and glass have their advantages and disadvantages for food storage. Plastic is lightweight and easy to store, but can release harmful chemicals and is less durable than glass. Glass is more durable and is non-porous, meaning it won't absorb flavours or odours from your food. This ensures that your meals retain their original taste and quality.
