Supply Chain Challenges

Shelf life variability

It is a well known fact that food groups (Strawberries, avocados, lettuce etc) have varying shelf lifes. Even identical foods from the same harvest may have a different shelf life depending on harvest conditions, produce quality at harvest, handling and processing during harvest and post harvest storage.

Different requirements from different stakeholders

There is no magic holding temperature for all foods to ensure and maintain freshness. Even product from the same harvest site can have different shelf life.

There are a variety of environmental and product specific factors to consider when you wish to improve operational performance and increase product freshness across your food chains.
