Prepared meal delivery services are getting more popular each day, catering to individuals who do not have the time or aspiration to make all their meals from home. Several meal-delivery websites want to lift eating-in to a higher level by delivering high-quality prepared dishes to your doorstep. Whether ordered to celebrate a holiday or as a gift, the food is billed as being as good as what’s served in a fine restaurant.
This is made possible with blast freezing the meals which is a rapid form of freezing which minimises the damage and preserves food at a high quality. During the process of freezing, all the water molecules turn into crystals, the faster the freezing the smaller the crystals and after defrosting, there will be no loss of liquid, firmness or flavour. The freezers are high capacity rapid air freezers with an air temperature of -35°C which quickly blast freeze the meals down to -18°C and guarantees a high quality, better tasting product.
Blast freezers come in a variety of configurations, from single-load freezers that freeze batches of products, to “continuous” freezers such as tunnel freezers that continuously freeze product as it moves through the freezer on a conveyor belt.
