Why Location Matters for National Warehouse Storage in the Upper Midwest

December 7th, 2018 · No Comments

The United States is a very large country, both geographically and demographically. Because of this, it’s critical that we are able to support a national system of goods, transportation and storage, from coast to coast for a wide range of industries. When it comes to the food industry, however, supporting this system of transport and storage can be difficult because of the short shelf life of most foods. Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company provides the necessary climate-controlled warehouse storage in the Upper Midwest for extended quality, nutrition, and flavor for frozen, refrigerated, and dried food goods. Our locations in Albert Lea, MN, and Austin, MN, are a critical part of our capabilities in providing food products to local communities and across the country.

For the network of shipping lanes across the United States, warehouse locations are key parts of ensuring transported goods are delivered on time with their quality maintained throughout the journey. Our climate-controlled warehouse storage facilities offer a prime location for mid- and cross-country transportation between the east and west coast as well as between the northern and southern U.S. borders.

Not only are our freezer, refrigerator, and dry storage warehouses perfect for safely storing food products from local customers and offering high quality products from farm to shelf in our own communities, they are also highly effective locations for storing food products that will reach communities all over the country.

MFWC state-of-the-art warehouse storage facilities are located in the Upper Midwest along several shipping lanes that move a wide range of products from many different food providers north, south, east, and west. Whether it’s an orange from Florida making its way to North Dakota or a frozen shrimp coming from the Pacific Northwest down to Chicago, our warehouses offer a pit-stop location with safe, efficient, storage solutions in the exact climate needed.

Our warehouse storage handles over 35,000 truckloads of high-quality food products each year. All these products are held in our clean, climate-controlled warehouse facilities for as long as needed to keep the national supply chain moving efficiently and quickly so households, restaurants, hospitals, and many other locations can have access to nutritious, delicious food products year-round.

The shelf life of food products may be the most difficult to support in a national transportation system, but with the help of MFWC and other high-quality climate-controlled warehouses in the right locations, we can feed America.

Understanding Temperature Standards for Climate-Controlled Storage Warehouses in Albert Lea, MN

November 1st, 2018 · No Comments

The advanced technology we use to store foods today allows communities across the country to have year-round access to seasonal items, exotic foods, location-specific foods, and long-term storage of meats, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, prepared foods, breads, and more. Because of the wide range of capabilities large-scale storage warehouses provide, even remote areas in the U.S. have access to frozen, refrigerated, and dry food goods. Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company (MFWC) provides comprehensive, high quality food storage with our two state-of-the-art climate-controlled storage warehouses in Albert Lea, MN so households across the country and in our local communities can have a range of nutrition and flavors all year long.

 

Storing the wide range of foods we keep in our climate-controlled storage warehouses takes an equally-wide range of temperature and humidity types. For example, frozen foods and dry goods can’t be stored in the same climate. MFWC is dedicated to providing the best storage for all foods that come through our facilities to protect your product from farm to shelf. Our storage climates range from 0 ºF to 50 ºF with various levels in between.

 

Storing Foods at 0 ºF

 

Frozen food items are commonly stored at 0° F (-18° C) in storage facilities and in small scale freezers. We store all frozen vegetables, fruits, meat and fish, breads, prepared dinners, dessert products, spices, and all other frozen food types in this climate. All products are closely inspected at arrival for damaged packaging and then kept tightly sealed to prevent freezer burn and moisture damage.

 

Storing Foods at 32 ºF

 

While 32 ºF (0 ºC) is the temperature at which water freezes, it’s not a freezing temperature applicable to all food products. Primarily, this temperature is considered the best to store refrigerated meats. Because it’s an extreme refrigeration range, this temperature zone will ensure quality meats and protect meat products from potential spoiling or microorganism growth.

 

Storing Foods 41 ºF

 

This temperature zone is an industry standard refrigeration zone used for almost all refrigerated goods. It is also used as a slow-cooling and slow-thawing zone to defrost frozen products or to prime products for a true freeze. 41 ºF (5 ºC) is useful in this transition process for preventing a fast freeze that may damage foods that are frozen for long periods and effective in slowly unfreezing foods without exposing them to warm temperatures that may promote microorganism growth.

 

Storing Foods 50 ºF

 

This zone is not typically used in industrial facilities, but it is the common temperature of consumer refrigerator crisper drawers. We sometimes store specialty produce and other goods at this temperature when needed.

Preventing Foodborne Illnesses With Better Climate-Controlled Storage in the Upper Midwest

October 1st, 2018 · No Comments

In the past few months, reported increases in incidents of foodborne illnesses have forced the food industry and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to examine safety practices. Investigations have revealed a large number of issues that contributed to foodborne illnesses outbreaks, from growing practices to transportation and storage. The CDC estimates that 1 in 6 Americans fall ill with food-borne pathogens each year, and approximately 3,000 US citizens die of these illnesses in that same year. Awareness of these issues is the most important and first step to bettering food safety practices. At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company, re committed to improving our standards for high-quality climate-controlled storage in the Upper Midwest every day.

 

MFWC has worked in cold storage for over 100 years, with roots going back to the 1915 Newell Family Creamery and produce storage warehouse. Since then, we have worked one step ahead of drastically changing food safety regulations and climate-control technology to promote the best food storage practices for our local households and businesses as well as communities across the country.

 

Food safety is a complex issue that can be compromised at any step in a food product’s journey from the farm to the plate, and the horror stories of foodborne illnesses affecting children, newly-emerging pathogens, and food recalls tell us just how difficult it is to prevent problems from occurring.

 

While it may be hard to fix problems in the food industry that compromise food safety, we can all work to do better in our own roles, as growers, harvesters, packers, shippers, storers, processors, grocers, and chefs.

 

What Can We Do?

 

With our climate-controlled storage warehouses, MFWC works to eliminate the potential for foodborne illnesses to activate and spread in the food products we store. When it comes to frozen, refrigerated, and dry foods, our warehouse systems and skilled employees work to continually preserve the temperature and humidity of our storage facilities. Because bacteria, molds, viruses, and parasites all operate at temperatures above 40º F, we keep our warehouses within strict temperature ranges. This ensures that these microorganisms won’t have the opportunity to reproduce and infect food further if they’re present, and if they aren’t present, it guarantees they will not have the means to be introduced. Our facilities are AIB and MNSHARP certified, USDA-inspected, and protected with Agility Recovery backup power systems. All products stored in our warehouses are kept under strict inventory with our own systems as well as our partnership IT systems with TallyWorks WMS.

 

Our goal as a climate-controlled industrial food warehouse provider is to always place our primary focus on food safety and food security. It might not be possible for MFWC to solve every problem with food safety, but we will always strive to do our part in bettering the industry and keeping our communities safe.

Keeping Organics Fresher for Longer With High-Quality Cold Storage in Austin, MN

August 17th, 2018 · No Comments

Organic methods of production are quickly becoming a major contender across all areas of the food industry, including packaging, shipping, and storage. At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company, we’re committed to providing climate-controlled warehouse storage to maintain food quality and safety standards for frozen refrigerated, and dry goods. With over 15,000,000 lbs of perishable goods passing through our facilities each year, we place a strong emphasis on maintaining food security. Not only do our locally lead facilities operate with HACCP implemented procedures and are annually certified by AIB International, but we also provide comprehensive cold storage in Austin, MN for conventional and organic-certified products.

While the products that are made with conventional growing and processing methods are often almost indistinguishable from those made with organic-certified production procedures, there are certain products that require more rigor and attention in storage. Primarily, organic fresh produce and whole foods have a shorter shelf life, but with the right climate storage conditions and shipping care, these products can stay fresher for longer.

Organic Fruits and Vegetables

Maintaining the quality and nutrition of organic fruits and vegetables can be more difficult than conventional produce due to two main factors. First, organic products are not treated with pesticides, grown with certain hormones, or stored with non-organic preservatives. This means they are more vulnerable to mold, bacteria, bugs, and other microorganisms that can start the decay process or generally damage quality. The second factor that can negatively affect the quality of organic produce more readily than conventional produce is the distribution process as a whole. Organic farming and food production is a new system in comparison to the conventional food industry, and as a result, the packaging and cross-country transportation of organics may be slower and less efficient than the standard process. This means that organic fruits and vegetables may reach storage facilities and grocery shelves at peak freshness or soon after, leading to a swifter loss in quality and nutrition.

Organic Whole Foods

Like organic fruits and vegetables, other whole foods grown and packaged with organic-certified methods may have a shorter shelf life without high-quality storage facilities. While grains, nuts, beans, and other foods that can be kept in dry storage may last longer than fresh produce, these foods are still susceptible to decline in quality more quickly than conventional products. The lack of preservatives, pesticides, and hormones in organic whole foods leaves them more easily susceptible to contaminating microorganisms. These foods are also distributed within the same organics food system, which is smaller and may be slower than conventional systems.

With organic produce and organic whole foods, as well as other processed organic products, the right storage is key. MFWC protects organics with our advanced climate-controlled facilities, including organic-certified refrigeration, dry storage, and freezer warehouses.

Reliable Commercial Refrigeration in Albert Lea, MN Yesterday and Today

July 18th, 2018 · No Comments

Since humankind learned to store foods in cold corners of a cave, cool riverbeds, and packed snow, the evolution of cold storage has advanced and grown into what we use now on commercial and residential levels. Today, our cold storage technology takes the form of industrial climate-controlled warehouses and home refrigerators that remind you to pick up milk via text message. The benefits these cold storage containers have given humankind are numerous, from significantly decreasing food-borne illness to providing fresh fruits and vegetables year-round. At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company, reliable cold storage is a continued primary focus, and we’re dedicated to providing continuous reliability for commercial refrigeration in Albert Lea, MN.

The difference between commercial refrigeration even 100 years ago and today is vast, but the steps leading up to current cold storage technology show a logical pattern of research into cooling chemicals, container materials, and health and environmental impact.

Refrigeration’s Past

In the late 16th century, the food and drink industry was beginning to put to use industrial cooling methods beyond ice harvesting. The wine industry began to utilize sodium and potassium nitrates to cool their products, and these chemical additions were soon used in other commercial food storage. This was the first occurrence of the word “refrigerant” and the reference of the cooling of food as “refrigerate.” Over the next few centuries, the development of refrigeration technology stagnated until the 1800s when a growing population in the Western world demanded more reliable cold containment for the transportation and storage of large food quantities. In the late 19th century, the first refrigerators were patented. By 1865, refrigeration machines were used commercially in the US, and in the 1900s there was widespread use of ammonia-cycle refrigeration in the food industry. In 1996, the Regulatory Clean Air Act changed the commonly used refrigerant from Freon to HFC 134a, a haloalkane refrigerant with a significantly lower potential for ozone depletion. During that time and since, the development of refrigeration technology has continued to focus on eliminating or lessening impacts on the earth while improving container quality.

Our Refrigeration

MFWC has its foundation in the 1915 company warehouse for De Soto Creamery & Produce Co., and since then we’ve built our standards for commercial refrigeration facilities on storage reliability and adherence to environmental protection. Now in our fourth generation of family owners, MFWC provides trusted climate-controlled storage including advanced commercial refrigeration. With continued quality assurance, diligent inventorying, and backup power supply systems, you can rely on MFWC to protect food safety regulations and product security from transportation units to grocery store shelves.

GMPS: What It Is and How We Do It for Warehouse Storage in the Upper Midwest

June 21st, 2018 · No Comments

When it comes to maintaining food safety in the U.S., the FDA and other regulatory organizations are vigilant in overseeing all aspects of the production process from the farm to the home refrigerator. Food storage and transportation are critical parts of this process, and without the strict regulations placed on commercial, transportation, and residential food storage equipment and practices, food safety across the country would be compromised. At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company, we believe that everyone should have access to safe foods that are nutritious and delicious. That’s why we use Good Manufacturing Practice Systems (GMPS) with our climate-controlled warehouse storage in the Upper Midwest.

MFWC is committed to providing the best quality warehouse storage for frozen, refrigerated, and dry foods, and the right certifications help us prove to clients and consumers that we follow through on that promise every day. Our warehouse facilities are inspected regularly by the USDA, and our GMPS is certified annually by AIB International.

Having a certified GMPS is great, but let’s talk about what that really means.

Good Manufacturing Practice System

 The regulations for GMPS in the food and drug industry have been developed and redeveloped since the industrial revolution drastically changed food production and distribution in the U.S. Today, the FDA oversees regulations for food and drug GMPS.

Because MFWC utilizes a certified GMPS, you can trust us to protect your food products as they travel from field and pasture to our storage warehouses to grocery shelves. Our certified GMPS provides structure to our staff and management for food storage, inventory, and climate-control in dry storage, freezer and refrigerator warehouses.

This ensures your goods are safeguarded from issues caused by a lack of any facet of the food transportation and storage process including:

  • cross-contamination from lack of hygiene, allergens, or proximity to other food products
  • poor temperature control leading to food spoilage
  • loss of power leading to poor climate control
  • lost or damaged goods due to poor inventory and recording systems
  • inaccurate information about storage history due to poor documentation practices
  • compromised worker safety due to poor working conditions or lack of attention
  • poor customer service due to lack of communication between departments and clients
  • overall losses in time, money, and goods

With MFWC you can rest easy with the knowledge that our GMPS prevents these negative events from occurring and protects your goods, even in the face of disaster. You can also trust us to continue strengthening our GMPS to meet customer demands and keep developing this system in accordance with changing technologies, practices, and regulations.

To learn more about our GMPS, food safety practices, and climate-controlled warehouse storage in the Upper Midwest, contact MFWC at (844) 373-1477 or send in your questions today.

Reliable Power Recovery Maintains Food Safety in Austin, MN

June 4th, 2018 · No Comments

When it comes to food stored in refrigerated, frozen, and dry environments, keeping the climate under control and consistent is the most important factor in maintaining food safety standards. If the power flowing to a climate-control system is lost, stored food can quickly lose quality and consumption safety. With Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company, you can count on our storage warehouses to keep climates at a constant and protect food safety in Austin, MN.

 

Power outages are one of the biggest problems for supporting food safety in regards to frozen, refrigerated, and otherwise climate-controlled food items. A loss of power in a freezer warehouse, for example, can cause dairy, meats, vegetables, baked goods, and other products to spoil on a large-scale.

 

MFWC partners with Agility Recovery to ensure that all our dry storage, refrigerated, and freezer warehouses maintain climate control even through long term power loss. Agility Recovery provides high-quality, reliable back-up generators for all our climate-controlled warehouses to prevent losses in food safety and quality.

 

When frozen, refrigerated, or dry-storage foods are exposed to changing temperatures and environments due to a power loss, they can start to spoil within hours. The bacteria and microorganisms in foods are dormant at temperatures below 40º but will quickly become active and reproductive when warmed up.

 

Bacteria Breakdown

 

The bacteria and other microorganisms that are active in foods at temperatures over 40º vary from food to food. Meat will contain very different microbes compared to fruits and vegetables, but both can be equally dangerous if microorganisms are allowed to grow and multiply. With our partnership with Agility Recovery and our own consistent power systems, MFWC prevents the growth of the following food-spoiling bacteria and microorganisms in food products stored in our warehouses:

 

  1. In meats and fish: Aspergillus, Mucor, Moraxella, Carnobacterium, Penicillium, Rhizopus, Brochothrix thermosphacta, Botrytis, Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Fusarium, Acinetobacter, Leuconostoc, and many additional kinds of molds.
  2. In pasteurized milk and dairy products: Bacillus, Shewanella putrefaciens, Pseudomonas fragi, Alcaligenes, Penicillum, Mucor, Clostridium butyricum, Clostridium sporogenes, and others.
  3. In fruits and vegetables: Erwinia carotovora, Pseudomonas, Botrytis cinerea, Clostridium botulinum, Geotrichium candidum, Aspergillus, Geotrichum candidum, Phytophora mildews, Penicillium, and others.
  4. In prepared foods: Bacillus cereus, Rhizopus stolonifer, lactic acid bacterias, Megasphaera cerevisiae, Saccharomyces diastaticus, Candida valida, and other molds, yeasts, and bacteria associated with whole food products.

 

When it comes to food safety, MFWC follows our own high standards in addition to FDA regulations, HACCP protocol, and other national and state food safety principles. With the added security our partnership with Agility Recovery provides, you can trust our climate-controlled warehouses with your orders from farm to shelf.

 

For more information about MFWC and how our systems and partnerships work to maintain food safety in Austin, MN, and across the country, contact us at (844) 373-1477 today.
