Your specialist for meal-distribution systems – temp-rite
temp-rite International is one of Europe’s leading suppliers of meal-distribution and food-logistics solutions. Its original business idea was to apply the principle of the vacuum flask to the manufacture of insulated trays for complete meals. Airlines wanting to serve their passengers high-quality convenience meals were the initial target customer group. As things turned out, the meal-distribution system developed by temp-rite ended up becoming a best-seller in hospitals and old peoples’ homes. Why? Because it kept hot food hot and cold food cold. Which is exactly what it was supposed to do.
Today, meals for hospitals and clinics, old people’s homes and rehabilitation facilities, schools and kindergartens and correctional facilities are served on temp-rite food-distribution systems all over the world. Besides our institutional customers, catering companies also number among the satisfied users of our systems.
Insulated trays are one of the out-and-out classics among our food-distribution systems. They hold a complete meal (be it breakfast, lunch or an evening meal), including side dishes, drinks, soup starters, as well as snacks, cutlery, a napkin, and accommodate other accessories, (such as a patient identifier card). Our insulated tray systems are divided into a number of thermal zones in the form of separate high-sided compartments for the various meal components. The dishware inserts are held securely in place in the compartments, which prevents spillage of meal components. The design and layout of our trays make it easier for the elderly, and people with physical disabilities, to eat unaided. And of course the thermal zones keep hot meal components hot and cold ones cold, even when they are right beside each other. In this meal-distribution system, each complete meal is contained in a server-and-cover combination whose external shape allows dovetailed stacking .This means meals can be transported on open (and therefore inexpensively priced) ward trolleys.
From its very earliest days, temp-rite International has concentrated on delivering fully rounded meal-distribution solutions. We have a comprehensive range of cutting-edge systems capable of maintaining food at the desired temperature on its way from the kitchen to the diner or patient, regardless of whether you are operating a buffet system or serving individual trayed meals.
Modern meal-distribution systems: regeneration of meals
temp-rite has highly developed, cost-efficient and future-proof concepts for every imaginable set of meal-distribution requirements, regardless of whether you are running a Cook and Serve, a Cook and Chill or a Cook and Freeze meal-preparation operation. Besides Insulated trays, we also offer pellet systems, and so-called active meal-distribution systems (i.e. heated or cooled food-transport carts). temp-rite utilizes technologies such as convection heating and contact-heat transfer to provide its customers with the best meal-distribution performance available. With our equipment, you can increase productivity in the kitchen, improve the quality of the food you serve, and achieve unrestricted flexibility – and all whilst maintaining very high levels of cost efficiency.
Every preparation method will make its own demands of a meal-distribution system. In our Temp-Trolley, you have a food-transport workhorse for the distribution of trayed meals, i.e. meals on insulated system trays. Our Temp-Futura, Temp-Contact, Temp-Serve and Dock-Rite carts with integrated active heating and/or cooling systems provide all the functions you could ever need to serve meals that are cooled or heated to exactly the right temperature. temp-rite also offers a number of buffet systems that can be configured exactly to your requirements. Its Temp-Classic Pro and Serve-Rite buffet carts are available in various sizes, and with a wide range of technical features (e.g. built-in heating and cooling systems). In addition, a wide selection of facings and drawer configurations is available for these carts. That means they can be adapted to whatever meal-distribution scenario you have in mind for them.
