Meat & Seafood Transport
Transportation for Meat and Poultry Products
Meat and poultry need to be kept ideally at 28-32°F. As storage temperatures approach 40°F the growth of bacteria increases with an accelerated growth at 50°F and above. Transportation of meat and poultry needs to be properly handled for products to arrive safely for consumer sale.
Transportation of fresh meat, processed meat, and frozen meat products all have different guidelines. Frozen meat must remain completely frozen at all times. Processed meats have longer shelf life than fresh meat, but still must kept below 40°F at all times. Fresh meat have a limited shelf life and must be in the supermarket for sale within two days.
Transporting Fish and other Seafood Products
Fresh caught or market fresh fish should be stored at a temperature below 40°F as well. Safe handling and storage of seafood is important for the quality and safety of the seafood item. Seafood packed in ice or an ice slush is an excellent way of making sure the fish stays its freshest.
Time and Temperature – The 2 Biggest Factors
The transportation of fresh meat and seafood depend on two very important factors, time and temperature. Having a delivery truck that ensures the proper temperature is maintained and has the necessary customizations to make transport efficient, is key to success.
