SIAL in China|Central kitchens to Increasing Production Efficiency

2024.02.29

SIAL in China learned that producing food in an industrialized way is what sets central kitchens apart from traditional catering processing methods. This allows for a great increase in production efficiency and a significant reduction in production costs. Combined with a modern logistics and distribution network, food from the central kitchen can be delivered to the appropriate catering outlets very quickly.

Central kitchen modern production and processing methods is extremely similar to the production of electronic products. It is in accordance with the standardized operation of the assembly line, and the quality of the control is more stringent and fine. For example, Jiu Mao Jiu Group a participant in the central kitchen, has established a dedicated supply chain center for the national stores of ingredients and materials procurement, production and processing, warehousing, logistics and distribution of supply services. Through the use of bar code technology, network information technology, GPS positioning and other technologies, the whole process of transportation monitoring can be achieved to avoid the risk of food safety during transportation. In addition, a testing center has been set up and a three-tier quality monitoring system has been created to ensure the safety of food delivered to stores.

In recent years, policy dividends related to central kitchens have been continuously introduced.In 2017 and 2018, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs successively issued the Notice on the In-depth Implementation of the Staple Food Processing Industry Enhancement Actions and the Notice on the Implementation of the Agricultural Product Processing Industry Enhancement Actions, which put forward the active development of the construction of central kitchens, personalized customization, and other new industries and new business modes.In 2019, 24 departments, such as the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Commerce, and other departments issued the Opinions on Promoting the High-Quality Development of Logistics and Facilitating the Formation of a Strong Domestic Market, proposing the development of new modes of cold-chain logistics such as fresh food e-commerce + cold-chain home distribution, central kitchen + cold-chain distribution of ingredients, etc.. In 2022, the State Council issued the Notice on the Issuance of the "14th Five-Year Plan" for Promoting Modernization of Agricultural and Rural Areas, proposing to carry out the development of The State Council issued the Circular on Promoting Agricultural Rural Modernization Plan in the 14th Five-Year Plan, proposing the development of deep processing of agricultural products, and the layout of central kitchens, staple food processing, leisure food, convenience food, net food processing and other forms of business in the main production areas and the suburbs of large and medium-sized cities. The national policy on the development of the central kitchen industry has maintained consistency, providing a policy dividend for the construction of central kitchens.

SIAL in China believes that chain companies with basic advantages in supply chain and stores are the "pioneers" of central kitchen construction. For example, Xibei, Grandma's, Shelter, Meizhou Dongpo, Din Tai Feng, Harvest Day and other well-known restaurant chains all have their own central kitchen. Some third-party central kitchen leaders have also emerged. The emergence of central kitchens has taken China's catering industry from traditional handmade workshops to modernized factory production.
