Frequently Asked Questions

Our food-grade warehouses are kept at the temperatures required for the specific food items in question. Generally, perishable foods are stored at temperatures between 0-4℃. These would include fruits and meats, for example. Foods that are not perishable can be stored at higher temperatures, anywhere between 10-21℃. These foods may include canned meat, jelly or peanut butter.

To store or transport ambient food means to maintain food at room temperature. Essentially, this is usually done in regard to non-perishable food. That being said, despite non-perishables being mostly immune to degradation over time, there has to be carefully put into how they’re stored in order to keep the product as fresh as possible. Food stored at ambient temperatures must be placed within clean and dry conditions with a good level of ventilation. It also must be kept separate from other foods that may cause cross-contamination.

HACCP is a food management system that identifies and controls any potential hazards that may occur during food storage and production so that they are safe for eating. The system has several steps. 

  • Hazard Analysis – This essentially details a method to find and/or check for elements of the warehouse environment that may cause harm to the food being stored. 
  • CCP (Critical Control Points) – This is a procedure to undergo when a hazard is detected, in order to remove the said hazard and ensure that it has not caused any undue change to the food stored. 
  • Record Taking – Perhaps one of the more critical parts of HACCP is recording all hazards detected and resolved, in order to prevent further damage from happening. 

GMP refers less to hazards, and more to maintain a high level of quality across all foods. GMP involves keeping strict procedures when handling and storing food, mostly in the realm of keeping facilities clean and hygienic. It also involves controlling raw materials and ingredients, monitoring production processes and conducting regular quality checks. 

By following these, we ensure our food warehouses are always in the best condition it can be.
