Rubbermaid Commercial Products Unveils New Color-Coded Food Storage and Preparation Tools

Rubbermaid Commercial Products unveils its new color-coded foodservice solution at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago.

RCP’s seven color foodservice solution covers everything from prep tools to storage. The color-coded system helps facilitate the safe handling of food, with a color palette designed to fit the unique needs of the commercial kitchen. The color-coded foodservice will be available in October 2016.

The product range includes cutting boards, tongs, high-heat spatulas, square containers and lids, round containers and lids, and a cutting board rack. The seven color options are designed to facilitate the safe handling of raw meat, poultry, dairy, seafood, cooked meat, produce and potential allergens by foodservice professionals.

The products provide an easy solution to help facilitate the safe handling of food and are built to withstand the commercial kitchen environment. All products within the color-coded foodservice solution are commercial dishwasher safe. The high-heat spatulas are built to resist temperatures up to 500⁰F and the tongs feature rubber grips to enable better control and handling.

“According to the CDC, contaminated food causes nearly 48 million illnesses a year in the U.S., which affects 1 in 6 Americans. For this reason, it’s important for foodservice professionals to have a simple and efficient way of making sure the food they prepare is safe,” says Kristine Sickels, senior vice president of marketing. “Our unique seven color foodservice product line is easy-to-use and gives kitchen professionals the tools that can give them the peace of mind that the food they prepare is safe and sanitary at every stage of the process.”

Along with the color-coded foodservice product line, RCP will also be exhibiting two of its most popular refuse solutions for the foodservice industry at the NRA Show— Slim Jim and the hands-free Slim Jim Step-On containers. Slim Jim products are designed to fit in the tightest spaces and are available in a variety of sizes, colors and styles to meet the unique needs of any commercial facility.

RCP will also showcase additional products including: ProSave ingredient bins, Executive Series Quick Cart, WaveBrake buckets, Configure recycling system and the BRUTE container with venting channels.
