Agriculture can be a delicate balancing act. Understandably, modern consumers have high expectations about the quality of produce they purchase, expecting it to be supplied in fresh condition. Therefore, the process from harvesting to distribution needs to be as quick and efficient as possible to reduce the amount of time that produce is exposed to external influences, such as light, heat and humidity, all of which can advance the deterioration of fruit and vegetables and cause premature spoilage.
Spoiled produce means it can’t be sold in optimum condition, reducing prices and impacting negatively on profits. A slow or unresponsive production line can also affect the pick-to-pack time, causing inconvenient backlogs of produce that begins to deteriorate while awaiting processing.
Efficient Cold Rooms Protect Your Precious Stock
An inefficient cold room that struggles to maintain its temperature can be disastrous for your business. As well as ensuring you observe health and safety regulations, a cold store ensures that produce is protected from premature spoilage, keeping it in perfect condition for sale. A cold room that is failing to operate efficiently forces the cooling equipment to work harder to compensate, increasing your energy bills and damaging vulnerable produce.
At MTCSS, we can plan and manage the refurbishment of cold rooms and walk-in freezers and chillers, to ensure they operate with maximum efficiency. Our cold store doors are ideal for agricultural and food processing businesses for whom light, heat and humidity are particularly problematic, ensuring that produce is protected for as long as possible from these external influences by minimising exposure to them.
How Rapid-Rise Doors From MTCSS Can Protect Your Produce
If you’re planning to refurbish your cold room, consider installing fast-acting rapid rise doors to improve access to storage areas and to reduce the time that produce is exposed to external influences. At MTCSS, our doors are responsive, quick, and water-repellent. With a rapid opening and closing cycle, the loss of cool air from cold rooms is prevented, helping to maintain the internal temperature that is necessary to keep produce in unblemished condition.
Excellent thermal insulation qualities and the unique cold lock system means that your energy costs are slashed, while the water-resistant material prevents the ingress of humidity which can also be damaging to foodstuffs. As hygiene is of the utmost importance for food manufacturers, our cold room doors are designed to repel the accumulation of bacteria, providing an easy-to-clean solution that will help to protect the environment and your stock.
