It is estimated that about $17 billion is lost globally as a result of food spoilage during transportation and storage.
When perishable foods leave your hands for distribution, how can you be sure that unacceptable temperatures won’t compromise their quality and safety during transit? Refrigeration equipment is not always reliable, and temperature can vary throughout a trailer, stack of pallets, or warehouse. Your food products may pass through 17 or more handlers during the distribution process, possibly enduring delays and substandard intermediate storage.
A cold chain breach might go unnoticed at first, but poor temperature control can lead to bacterial growth, fungal decay, and premature spoilage — affecting already low margins. Unknowingly selling inferior foods can have devastating effects. Temperature deviations can also affect flavor, texture, and appearance — trait variations that may not be visibly evident, especially if the packaging is tinted or opaque. Selling inferior or inconsistent goods may contribute to a decrease in customer satisfaction and loyalty.
