Undoubtedly since your earliest childhood you will have heard (and perhaps even said) the line “you mustn’t play with your food!”. We couldn´t agree more; especially, if food is what we make a living from. In the food sector, appropriate chilled packaging means that you always stay on the safe side.
And when we walk about chilled packaging we´re also talking about isothermal packaging, because the catering sector, directly linked to the food sector, often requires the transport of perishable processed foods that have to remain within certain temperature ranges, whether it is a salad or a burger…
Any business that works with perishable products for human consumption should be very aware of both the need and the added benefits of using chilled packaging. Will we tell you about them?
The health issue takes precedence over everything. Alterations in the cold chain reduce the shelf life of the product, harm its nutritional and organoleptic properties, damage it and increase the risk of food poisoning. Whatever the case, it is advisable to keep the temperature controlled.
Precisely because they are products intended for human consumption, the protocols and standards targeted at food safety are rigorous, and so too are the control and sanction mechanisms…
Adapted to each case
Perhaps you are a supermarket broadening its horizons towards cool lockers, a restaurant that sells food prepared for delivery, a catering or mass catering business, a manufacturing and processing factory or an e-commerce with perishable products, whether seasonal fruit or the most sophisticated French chocolates.
With the diverse and adaptable chilled packaging solutions that we offer, you can optimise your tailored business model, for example by opting for an isothermal container for a returnable or single-use perishable product, with a small or large capacity, adapted to a delivery bike or a multi-temperature van.
In any case, there are more resistant products and others that are extremely sensitive to the effects of temperatures: we can mention meat and fish, some fresh fruit and ice cream (the example par excellence). In these cases, it is even more important (if possible) to guarantee the conditions.
However, even with products that better withstand high temperatures or sudden changes, the controlled temperature delivery of food puts a winning card in the palm of your hand; being able to go further, extend your range, increase your potential market and thus grow as a business.
Packaging with added value
Whatever way you look at it, receiving a takeaway food order at the right temperature isn´t the same as getting it cold. Nor is a box of local vegetables with the produce as if it has just come from the garden the same as getting it wilted. Here is a margin of differential value.
It is no secret that packaging is a very powerful marketing channel; with temperature controlled packaging you are giving your brand image a high added value, by showing the end customer that you care about the quality you offer and not about putting your brand on the box or container… which also matters.
