Vacuum Cooling Service for Air and Maritime Transportation Logistics
Do you know what is
Certified cold chain?
The proper management of the cold chain, the adequate temperature and the right and stable RH (relative humidity) of the flowers‘ environment are key for their maintenance in transit and their longer lasting on the consumers‘ hands.
CERTIFIED COLD CHAIN is a complex, integrated, preservation system that involves hydration since postharvest and cold room storage, followed by a vacuum cooling process, protection, safeguarding and assurance during transport, until delivery of flowers to their destination.
Vacuum Cooling Service for Air and Maritime transportation Logistics
Vacuum cooling is applied, using advanced cooling technology for pre-cooling of flowers, aromatic herbs, small fruits, berries and leafy vegetables, to extend their vase life and storage life by decreasing post-harvest thermal related deterioration and keeping their freshness.
We ensure the Cold Chain via air, by vacuum cooling flowers prior to shipment and controlling every step with our Certified Cold Chain since origin. As flowers arrive to airports at origin and are built into air pallets, heat accelerates the damaging process if flowers are not cooled immediately.
This is the only method compatible with airport security standards.
The best way to maintain a cold chain, from origin to destination, is to use a refrigerated sea container where temperature and relative humidity are well controlled within right limits, at all times.
Before loading a container we REDUCE FREE MOISTURE and COOL DOWN the whole load to the right conditions.
