Fruits and vegetables are the most delicious, yet sensitive and perishable items if not stored in proper conditions. Similar to meat, eggs, and milk, fruits and vegetables also require adequate room temperatures to retain their freshness and quality. As a general rule, fruits and vegetables require a storage temperature close to 2°C and 8°C.
Adequate storage conditions for Fruits and Vegetables
To avoid the growth and proliferation of bacteria, fruits and vegetables must be kept within the right optimum temperatures and relative humidity levels. For example, if bananas, mango, or apple are stored without cold storage, the humidity level may reduce their freshness. It is advised to monitor these factors before storing fruits and vegetables to prolong their lives.
These requirements are important for everyone to follow including producers, packers, and transporters of fruits and vegetables. Therefore, placing these fruits and vegetable products in properly-designed cold storage is one step further into improving their shelf life. And this is what we do at Izhar Foster cold storage manufacturing company.
