New cloud-based “Catering Cloud” app helps chefs save time and money

Time management is critical for chefs managing restaurant and catering kitchens alike.  From tracking food inventory and storage to monitoring food safety policies, chefs spend at least an hour a day pushing paper instead of preparing food.

That’s where Catering Cloud comes in. The web-based productivity app has been designed by chefs for chefs, filling a technology void in the catering industry.

Sam Owen is the owner and chef at Salted Orange Food Co., an award-winning catering company in Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire. The idea for the new app came as Owen, who has been a chef for 15 years, wanted to automate the time he and his chefs spend tracking and monitoring food,

“We lose so much food prep time when we have to stop and deal with the paper side of the kitchen, like tracking food inventory and monitoring storage. By putting the information at our fingertips in the cloud, we are saving time and money, and we have really reduced our stress levels.” 

That’s why Owen developed Catering Cloud.  The app takes the risk out of food management by letting chefs instantly track everything in real time. Chefs who use the app have accurate, up-to-the-minute record keeping, which not only speeds up kitchen productivity, but also virtually eliminates the chance of being fined for improper paperwork and record keeping.

Catering Cloud is available on a subscription basis for £120 annually. Chefs and catering managers can download the new app for a free, 30-day trial at cateringcloud.co.uk.
