How can the use of machines improve the productivity of gastronomy professionals?

In general, productivity represents the relationship between production and the means used to achieve it. In the culinary sector, it's an essential criterion capable of setting a professional apart in a hyper-competitive environment. Let's take a look at how to improve the productivity of gastronomy professionals through the use of machines.

Increase profitability

Today, all food and beverage businesses tend to combine modernization with profitability.

In addition to the need for machine modularity, multitasking is also essential. Indeed, increasing profitability through mechanization of the trades includes process efficiency. As a result, processes are becoming much more autonomous and technical, making it easier to master demanding market constraints.

In the case of the bakery industry, for example, croissants machines can be used to automate the cutting and shaping of these succulent pastries. In terms of profitability, the result of the resources generated by the technical assets ensures a GAP in estimated revenues, especially in relation to the quantity produced.

Save time

Saving time is also synonymous with productivity gains. In the food industry, this aspect is much more optimized and enhanced through the use of professional machines. Indeed, the fundamental principle of mechanization is to increase the production of goods or services in less time, while avoiding any loss of quality.

A mixer, for example, enables a baker, pastry chef or kitchen laboratory technician to obtain homogeneous results from a mixing, kneading or emulsifying process.

Guaranteeing finish quality

Quality is a key factor enabling gastronomy professionals to stand out in their respective markets. Indeed, professional machines guarantee :

  • Greater comfort,
  • Less fatigue,
  • Reduced environmental impact.

Even if the culinary professions still emphasize the artistic and artisanal aspects of their know-how, mechanization makes it possible to manage certain stages of production, such as :

  • Dosage of ingredients,
  • Cooking times,
  • wastage of materials.

As a result, finishing quality is optimized by the use of professional machines. For example, a bakery professional can count on quality products when using a water chiller, as a constant dough temperature is guaranteed.

Reduce operating costs

In contrast to the common misconception that investing in professional machinery considerably increases operating costs, it should be noted that mechanization of business processes is also a lever for controlling costs. In the food sector, reducing costs through mechanization, such as the use of a series of pizza machines by a pizzaiolo, involves :

  • Innovating the production system,
  • Improving upstream preparation for each product or service,
  • Reducing labor costs and improving efficiency.

Refocus on core business

An overworked and stressed skilled workforce performs less well. In simpler terms, refocusing on the core business means moving away from related, time-consuming tasks. Another advantage of mechanization in the food sector is the ability to focus on much more profitable and advantageous activities and resources, such as training and the search for new markets.
