Storing fresh vegetables and fruits is a challenging task, especially because there are many factors such as age and production area that affect the preservation of fresh food. This guide explains why refrigeration is needed for fresh food and distribution inventory and the most important factors to consider when using refrigeration for fruits and vegetables.
The benefits of using cold storage
If there is no storage in the refrigerator, most fruits and vegetables will not stay fresh for more than a few days. As soon as harvesting fresh produce, it will begin to deteriorate and harmful bacteria will begin to grow.
Low temperatures in the cold room will stop the growth of fungi that cause these diseases, therefore ensuring that the deterioration of fruits and vegetables will decrease. Chilling and freezing are equally popular choices for a large number of selected fruits and vegetables. That's why our cold room units have different temperature ranges for freezing and cooling options.
Another advantage of the cool storage unit is that it is highly customizable, which is especially important when keeping fresh fruits and vegetables. The temperature and humidity levels may vary greatly in each product. Refrigerated warehouses for fruit and vegetables are available in a variety of sizes, including mini chillers that are ideal for sellers and large stores designed for large retailers.
Whether you want to expand your commercial refrigeration system or plan to enter the fruit and vegetable market, a portable cold room solution will help extend the shelf life of your fruits and vegetables.
