Fully Cooked Meat Makes "Cents"

March 23, 2023

The demand for maximum efficiency and cutting-edge innovation has never been higher for food service establishments. Your establishment needs to use products that saves on valuable time, labour and inventory space. To steamline your operation, Intercity Packers has developed a product line of fully cooked meat products that have a clean label, do not sacrifice quality, and are flexible enough so you can customize for your menu and apply your endless creativity.

To understand the true level of quality Intercity Packers' full cooked proteins can offer, we recommend trying our fully cooked products side-by-side with freshly cooked meat. Upon testing, you'll notice that cooking your own beef may cost more money than you realize. When crunching the numbers, there are variables you may not be taking into account, including:

  • Inconsistent yields from piece to piece, depending on trim, sizing and cooking method.
  • Variation in purge loss due to product age.
  • Inconsistency of in-house trimming.
Sous Vide Skinless Pork Belly

Fully cooked products, on the other hand, allow you to maximize every ounce of meat purchased due to minimal cook loss and no trimming. You’ll also know the true portion cost. Cooking your own beef requires:

  • Skilled labor focused on preparing and cooking with consistency.
  • Added food safety measures.
  • Dedicated oven space not available for other uses.
  • Time.
Smoked Racks of Pork Ribs

Fully cooked products allow you to apply your creativity elsewhere and reduce overall labor needs. Fully cooked is a smart business decision because:

  • Less inventory required due to smaller boxes.
  • Longer shelf life on cooked products decreases spoilage and shrink.
  • Less price fluctuation compared to fresh.

Our fully cooked products contain no binders, fillers, MSG or extra water. These value-added products are the best quality in each category. Fully cooked products deliver outstanding quality and flavour that is made from scratch with our premium process standards. When comparing fully cooked brands, always evaluate:

  • Label – watch for excess water or ingredients added to “fill in” for beef or “bind” water.
  • Visual – compare texture, color and overall appearance.
  • Taste – sampling will reveal the products that deliver rich, natural beef flavor.

Why cook your own beef and pork when mere pennies will deliver consistency, repeat business and labor savings?

Buying fully cooked products delivers consistency and is more cost effective than cooking your own.
