The Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex is a hotbed for delicious culinary creations. Ask any Texan, and they’ll all agree that queso, brisket, and sweet tea are essentials to menus across the Lone Star State. That’s nothing new.
But the way suppliers, manufacturers, and consumers move food distribution deliveries in Dallas and around the Metroplex has changed. Let’s chew on that subject for a bit.
Recently, the federal government implemented the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This strategy was put into place to prevent foodborne illnesses and contamination by updating food safety rules and mandating folks in the food industry to go through compliance training. In other words, the FDA wanted us all to be on the same page so that we can reduce the frequency of contamination and foodborne illnesses in our country.
For those of us involved in the transportation of food, it means we’re taking responsibility to ensure that your food items are transported using sanitary practices. While these regulations might be new, the idea of safe and sanitary transport certainly isn’t for Dallas Courier. For nearly 40 years, we’ve been moving your time and temperature sensitive foods throughout the Metroplex with the utmost care. We train our drivers and handlers in safe practices. Our vehicles are impeccably clean and maintained. We always move your items quickly, and to their desired location on time in order to get food items to their end destination faster to prevent overexposure or overhandling.
Another relatively new concept is instant gratification. Just a decade ago, there was no such thing as immediate delivery of food or anything else, for that matter. Now, you can have your entire dinner delivered to your table without ever speaking to another soul! (Expect for maybe the delivery driver when he knocks on your door.)
Instant gratification is the new expectation. That means food distribution deliveries in Dallas need be on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you need an immediate food delivery, a true on demand courier is available to transport it. Here at Dallas Courier, we man our phones all day and night. Whenever you call Dallas Courier, we’re going to answer with a live member of our team.
Farm to Table
Fresh food is a fabulous trend in the culinary world. The fresher, the better, in fact. North Texans want to know where their food is coming from, and preference is given to restaurants and grocers who serve food from local sources.
Keeping it local is such an awesome trend because it has great benefits. For starters, it supports your community. By buying local, your money is going right back to the farmer in your region, who spends his or her money in your community- and the cycle continues. Local purchases also reduce carbon emissions. Keeping it local means reducing processing plants and the need for long distance transportation. Moving items from farm to table creates a lower environmental impact because the farm is just around the corner from your table. Local purchases also just taste better. By the time you receive your “fresh” produce at some grocers, it’s been in a crate or in shipment for nearly 2 months. Apples can be up to 12 months old before you eat them. (!!!) Farm to table just tastes better. And great food distribution deliveries in Dallas help make that a reality.
The Best of Old and New
Dallas Courier prides ourselves on keeping the best of the old and implementing the latest of the new. We keep it old school with our principles of honesty and integrity. Our old school customer service attitude means we treat clients like family, and work hard to maintain a positive rapport with every customer.
