How do you store food in a warehouse?

Storing food in our warehouses requires careful planning and adherence to food safety standards to ensure the quality and safety of the products. Initially, it’s crucial to categorize foods based on their storage requirements; for instance, perishable goods, such as fruits and vegetables, require refrigeration or freezing, while dry goods, like grains and canned foods, can be stored at room temperature. The warehouse is organized into distinct zones according to temperature and humidity needs, with precise controls in place to maintain these conditions consistently. Proper ventilation is also essential to prevent the accumulation of odors or moisture. Shelving and storage units are be designed to facilitate easy cleaning and prevent contamination, with sufficient space to avoid overcrowding and to ensure good air circulation around the products. Additionally, our warehouses comply with all relevant food safety regulations and standards, including proper documentation and traceability systems to track the movement and storage conditions of all food items.

What is a food-grade warehouse?

A food-grade warehouse is a specialized storage facility designed to meet stringent standards for the safe and hygienic handling of food products. These warehouses are regulated by various health and safety authorities and must adhere to specific guidelines to ensure that food stored within them remains safe for consumption. This includes maintaining appropriate temperature and humidity levels to preserve different types of food products, from perishables like fruits and vegetables to non-perishables like grains and canned goods. The design and construction of a food-grade warehouse prioritize cleanliness and pest control, with features such as smooth, easily cleanable surfaces, adequate ventilation, and systems to prevent cross-contamination. 


Additionally, our facilities also employ rigorous operational procedures, including regular inspections, thorough cleaning schedules, and detailed record-keeping to track the movement and storage conditions of all food items. By adhering to these high standards, food-grade warehouses play a vital role in the food supply chain, ensuring that products stored within them reach the consumer in the best possible condition, free from contamination and spoilage.

What is the main problem people face with food supply chain?

One of the main problems people face with the food supply chain is inefficiency leading to significant food waste and loss. From farm to table, various factors contribute to this issue, including improper storage and handling, logistical delays, and inadequate infrastructure. These inefficiencies often result in perishable goods spoiling before they reach consumers. Additionally, mismatches between supply and demand can lead to overproduction of certain foods, further exacerbating waste.  


Addressing these challenges requires a coordinated effort to improve supply chain efficiency, reduce waste, and enhance the resilience of food systems against external shocks.
