Common Practices for Refrigerated Storage

When it comes to investing in refrigerated storage in the Upper Midwest, the team at Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company is here to help. Although there are many different reasons to invest in a professional team to handle your cold storage, one of the top reasons should be safety.

By trusting our professionals, you’re guaranteed high-quality, consistent storage for your refrigerated goods and foods. Here are just a few of the considerations we take into account in order to keep your products as perfectly safe and fresh as possible.

The proper understanding of refrigerator storage.

One of the most important things to consider when storing refrigerated food is the temperature. If handled incorrectly, food can grow harmful germs and bacteria, which is why refrigerators should remain at a constant 41 degrees Fahrenheit in order to maintain freshness. Our team will make sure that all of your food is correctly handled and stored at the proper temperature. 

How to arrange food correctly.

Organizing food is another important element of refrigerated food storage. That means investing time and work to put food where it is most effective. Shelves do need to be organized appropriately, from the lowest cooking temperature on the upper shelves to the highest cooking temperature towards the bottom. That means poultry items, like chicken and turkey, should always be stored near the bottom of your refrigerator.

Refrigerated Storage prevents throwing away bad food.

It’s important to regularly check the expiration dates on products and make sure they’re up-to-date. Different foods have different shelf lives, even when refrigerated. That means ground beef may expire sooner than summer sausage, and items containing ham, eggs, or dairy can vary. Work with a professional team to make sure that your food remains not only fresh but also safe!
