Refrigerated storage of fruits and vegetables is particularly challenging because there are many factors such as age and production area that can affect how fresh food is stored. This guide explains why refrigeration should be used for fresh food stock and distribution, and the most important factors to consider when using chilled food for fruit and vegetables.
The benefits of using cold storage
Most fruits and vegetables are not fresh for more than a few days unless refrigerated. As soon as fresh produce is harvested, deteriorating and dangerous bacteria grow.
The low temperature inside the cold storage area prevents the growth of these pathogenic fungi and minimizes the deterioration of fruits and vegetables. Refrigeration and freezing are equally popular options for many selected vegetables and fruits. That's why our refrigerator has a wide temperature range for refrigeration and cooling options.
Another unique advantage of cold storage units is that they are customizable. This is especially important when storing fresh fruits and vegetables. Temperature and humidity levels can vary significantly from product to product, so customization is essential. Refrigerated warehouses for fruits and vegetables are available in a variety of sizes, including mini chillers perfectly suited for chefs and mega cold shops designed for large retailers.
Whether you are expanding a commercial refrigeration system or planning to enter the fruit and vegetable market, portable refrigerated storage solutions extend the shelf life of fruits and vegetables during storage or transportation.
