A resturant manager says to his chefs in the kitchen room:

The time has come. Remember, product pride. Portion consciousness. Zero hour is upon us.

What is the meaning of "Portion consciousness"?
Portion is used as adverb here.

    I'd understand it to mean that the chefs have to be aware (conscious) of how much food they serve in a portion, so that the portion sizes are not too large or not too small. 'Portion consciousness' would be a compound noun then.
