Contrary to what most people think, frozen food storage is an art and, like any other art, it requires delicacy. If any one part of the frozen food chain stops working, the rest of it becomes useless because the quality of the food is already affected. For frozen food storage to work, it needs to be monitored continuously. If the quality of the food that reaches the consumer is going to be high, then the process of freezing and transporting the frozen food needs to go without a hitch. If you’re looking for a company to provide frozen food storage for your food product, then here are a few things you need to consider:
- Frozen, Cool, and Dry Storage: What kind of product are you selling? Certain products, like meat, need to be frozen in order to be preserved for longer periods of time. But fresh produce might need cool storage rather than being frozen. And other products such as tea leaves and coffee beans might just require dry storage. So make sure that you look for a storage company which will offer you what you need.
- Transportation: The other important element of getting your frozen products to your consumer is transportation. While your product is being transported, it needs to move from one frozen container to another. This means that transportation should be arranged in such a way that there are no gaps in freezing. A company with a railway spur designed for loading products or a network of trucks with freezing capability will be ideal for your purposes.
- Packaging and Labeling: We’ve all seen frozen foods in the supermarket, so we know that the food is not just sold without being weighed, packed, and labeled. Different types of products require different types of packaging. But it’s a good idea to check with your freezing company and find out if they provide this type of service. This way, your product will reach its destination in professional-looking and attractive packaging.
