How Cool Rooms Enhance Food Safety

We eat food to survive. We all do (or should) practice safe food hygiene and preparation when preparing food in our homes. When we’re feeling a bit fancy, or uninspired at home, a lot of us go out and buy food from a restaurant or café.

Keeping food stored safely is paramount – especially if you’re in the business of making and selling food and ingredients. This is where cool rooms are beneficial.

Allows for the right temperature

If you’re running a business, the last thing you want is spoilt food caused by incorrect temperature settings. Whether you’re storing raw meat and fish to dairy and/or fresh vegetables, a cool room is your greatest asset to maintain the quality and freshness of your produce.

 

How is it possible?

 

  • Cool rooms allow you to easily enforce temperature control with accurate thermostats.
  • This limits your chance of food entering the ‘danger zone’ (where bacterial growth that causes food poisoning can occur).

Cool rooms provide the peace of mind that’s needed for your foodservice or provisions business. They’re very resilient and can include a built-in automatic control to balance out if/when temperatures inside (or outside) change.

 

Encourages the correct storage of products

 

Food safety is not just about the temperature you store your food at and how you cook and prepare the food. In fact, an essential part of food safety is encouraging safe food storage procedures and practices.

 

Why is this important?

 

  • So, food and ingredients can be found easily and quickly
  • Allow for spaced-out products and good, circulating air flow
  • To add organisational flow to your business (which is greatly needed in rush periods), and
  • Greatly diminish the risks of cross-contamination.

Ample space is provided in a commercial cool room as opposed to a standard refrigerator.
