Fresh fruits and vegetables are an essential part of our diet. Farmers, distributors, and retailers can bear me witness that the demand for fruits and vegetables is constant. It is therefore important to have them as fresh as possible at all times. Nothing works perfectly than a cold room for vegetables, fruits Model Number VAC-H1.
The best storage temperatures for many vegetables and fruits
The truth is, although both of these products are gotten fresh from our farms, there is an excellent challenge in choosing the best temperature that will suit them all. At the same time, it would be much easier settling on the best storage temperatures for all vegetables than it is for the fruits. This is because, of their nature. Below are a few points to keep in mind before settling on the temperature to set your cold room.
The maturity of the crops in question.
The season the crops were harvested.
The source or origin of the produce.
Many cool-season fruits and vegetables can comfortably be stored under the same temperatures of not less than zero degrees and not exceeding two degrees. These cold season vegetables include sprout and kale. At the same time fruits and vegetables harvested during warmer seasons like tomatoes and cucumbers do well in temperatures, not below 7 degrees and not exceeding 10 degrees. Keeping this in mind will go a long way into setting the path for you if you provided you know how to differentiate the season of the fruits and vegetables you are dealing with.
There are different types of cold storage rooms for preserving your fruits and vegetables and below are just a few examples:
Large, medium and small-sized Refrigerated containers
As we stated above, the maximum temperature requirement for most fruits and vegetables is 10 degrees Celsius. Therefore, the current available refrigerated containers have a temperature of between -40 degrees and +10 degrees Celsius.
The containers are also available in different sizes making it easy for you to purchase the one that suits you best. The smallest open container is approximately 10ft while the biggest is a 45ft and there are other varying sizes in between the two.
Refrigerated containers are easily portable which makes them the best to have at any time. Whether you need for small scale or large scale storage of your vegetables and fruits, you will never go wrong with these containers. Refrigerated containers also come in handy for suppliers since they can comfortably be used for transportation purposes.
Freezers and chillers
Other than the refrigerated containers, blast freezers and chillers also come in handy for distributors of frozen vegetables and fruits. Blast freezers and chillers usually are very cold with temperatures of as low as -40 degrees Celsius. This is perfect freezing temperatures for most of the fruits and vegetables.
Other than distributors, there are mini blast freezers and chillers which are mostly used by caterers and small businessmen and women who have no space for any additional cooling unit.
Grade A Cold rooms
These are the best cold rooms since they can work both as a sterile processing area for your fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a preservation unit for your fresh produce. However, this unit is a bit expensive and more significant compared to the rest. Hence it is well suited for big companies. At the same time, these cold rooms are custom based which means they are not portable therefore, they need more space. Cold room for vegetables and fruits Model Number VAC-H1 perfectly fits into this category.
