3 strategies to make sure your product cooling is optimal this summer

The beautiful British summer is a temperamental beast at the best of times.

Sometimes you’ll be able to bask in the sun for hours, catching a heavy dose of ill-advised sun burn along the way.

At other (far more frequent) times you’ll be shielding your sun lounger from a sudden torrent of rain, before rushing indoors and wondering if you’ll ever get the chance to pull out the barbecue from the garage.

But if you own a food production facility, replicating the changeable climes of dear old Blighty will leave your premises laden with bacteria, condensation and a host of cross contamination problems.

So what can you do to ensure your products are staying as consistently cool as they should be?

To give you a hand, here are three tips from us.

1. Perform a full audit of your cooling systems

The cooling systems on your premises should be checked at regular intervals to ensure they’re running optimally, and fixed if you (or an auditor you’ve hired) notice a problem.

It could be that you find a foundational problem in your cooling systems, like poor energy efficiency or a lack of hygiene control.

But perhaps you’ll find issues which won’t require an overhaul of your process. Checking that the system filters on your systems, for example, are clean, and that all apertures and seals are spick and span, could be all you need to have your processes running smoother than a cold summer pint in the back garden.

No matter the problem you’re facing, you’ll only know about it if you check your cooling facilities thoroughly.

2. Make sure your systems are future-proofed

With outdated facilities, you’re increasing the likelihood of poor health and safety compliance and failing to meet the lofty standards and expectations of your clients.

So make sure the equipment you’re using is completely up to date. If it isn’t, you could find that product cooling becomes an even bigger headache for your business.

3. Get in touch with the professionals
