Fresh products have by nature many different characteristics in terms of quality, shelf life, and safety. To prevent products from spoiling and to ensure that they reach the end customer in the best possible condition, product-specific conditions must be met, and an optimal environment created throughout the supply chain.
Probably one of the most important aspects of handling fresh produce is ensuring safety and hygiene. To prevent the growth of microorganisms and thus the spoilage of products, the storage room, entire operating equipment and storage personnel themselves must consistently comply with hygiene measures. The product-specific temperature and humidity conditions play an equally important role in shelf life and quality. Vegetables stored too warmly can lose up to 70% of their vitamins after just two days. Especially for fresh products with a fast metabolism, the given environmental conditions play a crucial role. The faster the metabolism, the faster the spoilage process, and the more susceptible the respective products are to pressure marks and temperature fluctuations.
