At every stage of the cool chain, there are continuous temperature stability risks to microbiologically sensitive foods. These occur in many ways – from waiting in the loading bay, through delays in road journey to transfer from vehicle to distribution centre. The fact is that any variation in temperature can destroy the safety and integrity of the product leading to critical food safety and public health issues.
International regulatory measures require food industry and food safety professionals to comply with strict temperature requirements. Only an inherently insulating packaging material with proven low thermal conductivity combining with packed ice will ensure products arrive at point of sale or usage in perfect condition. EPS offers this proven thermal performance.
