The Importance of Cold Storage

A fundamental part of our lives the food we eat. Therfore the quality and conservation of this is vital. There has been many items in the news recently that have condemned famous restaurants due to food safety and hygiene. 

Cold storage is an essential part of preserving and extending the life of foods such as vegetables, fish and meat and has been for many years. It was the caveman who started realizing that the food caught from the jungle could be preserved in the best of its state when stored in packed ice or caves.

Restaurant Grade Storage

Today, we would not live or even imagine life without a cold storage unit of some sort. Try to imagine what it would be like for businesses such as restaurants, bars, cafes and more importantly, supermarkets to survive without one or two units of cold storage. 

Cold storage units are fundamental to any supermarket. From packaging to the shop floor, refrigerators and freezers are used to maintain the quality of the product. This is what’s known as the “cold chain”. A cold chain is what supermarkets and other businesses use to ensure their products are of the highest quality and safe to consume once it reaches the consumer.

What about the rest of the world?

Only recently has Asia followed the rest of the world selling frozen goods. As consumers become more affluent, the infrastructure to support the cold chain helps it expand year on year.

In China, for example, the frozen food market grew from nearly $10 billion in 2007 to an estimated $16 billion in 2012.
