Cool Chain integrity
Cool chain management is critical with fresh produce as it maintains the integrity of the product. If managed poorly it is a major contributor to deterioration of shelf life, appearance and taste.
Tripod Farmers Group manage our product very closely through our Cool Chain System. This system is continuously improved to maintain the optimal temperature of the product through the harvest, production, storage and transportation phases in the following ways:
We ensure that our system is regularly validated through:
- Product quality checks and control points
- Product temperature probing before and after transport
- Regular monitoring and calibration of our equipment
- Cool room temperature warning lights and alarms
- Transportation satellite temperature tracking and traceability
Our investment into cool chain management has been significant and one of the key factors of our success in delivering a consistently reliable quality product.
