Showcasing the unrivalled range of hot food that our hot-holding units can hold at just-cooked quality, for hours, not minutes

Support from A to Z

Amazon’s pioneering retail concept had begun rollout across the U.S., and consumers demanded a hot food range.

Amazon had no prior expertise in hot food and wanted to offer great tasting products, delivered with excellent efficiency by utilizing hot-holding. The Amazon team loved our technology and needed it to integrate seamlessly with the technology of the groundbreaking Amazon Go self-service concept.

We worked with them, from start to finish, to create a hot food menu and operation from the ground up, and created custom units that integrated with their brand and technology.

Technology

Amazon loved our technology‘s ability to hold food for several hours at just-cooked quality. We specified Flexeserve Zone, which accurately maintains multiple shelf temperatures within the same unit. This allows them to offer incredible hot food variety in a self-service format.

Food

We helped the food team develop a menu from the ground up. Our culinary experts inspired Amazon with true hot-holding’s incredible product potential and advised on the best recipes for hot-holding, unlocking a broad selection of great tasting hot food.

Culinary

Amazon needed a simple and efficient operation that complemented their technology. We devised processes with products cooked in-packaging, in large batches. We conducted food testing both remotely and in person, refining their cook methods for optimum quality.

Packaging

Packaging is pivotal for optimum hot-holding results. We guided Amazon on tailoring packaging to their range and a cook-in-packaging approach. By managing air flow for each product type, they can use our versatile hot air recirculation to their advantage.

Implement

We created a custom, premium Flexeserve Zone with black, acid-etched end panels and no reflective surfaces, to work with Amazon’s automatic purchase technology. In addition, we delivered a custom range of accessories to ensure the necessary separation between product types.
