Due to New Zealand's varied climate, food manufactures face many challenges in ensuring that the products that they send to supermarkets and beyond are up-to-standard.
As the population of New Zealand increases, as does the demand for food. Combine this with the above-listed factors and manufacturers have their work cut out for them keeping up with the demand without compromising food quality. It goes without saying that one of the more difficult sectors in regards to these challenges is the frozen food market. In this sector, the storage and transportation of food are particularly important to ensure quality is delivered to the consumer. This can be achieved through the use of devices such as the Testo 105 - Frozen Food Thermometer
Where can these thermometers be useful?
1) In trucks
As New Zealand's agricultural heartlands are spread far and wide, freight companies are tasked with transporting frozen goods such as meat and dairy across vast distances.
Because some of these trips can take several hours, these products must be checked and monitored regularly throughout the journey. Drivers can check on the stock using these thermometers during breaks to ensure that the stock is still within a safe temperature range. If there is a problem due to temperature fluctuations, drivers will be alerted by a visual or audible alarm that allows them to address the problem before the food is spoiled.
2) In abattoirs
New Zealand produces some of the best meat in the world. Due to this, there is a serious demand for these products for overseas markets such as Russia and China.
As trade between New Zealand and these countries continues to increase, those at the beginning of the chain in the slaughterhouse are tasked with ensuring the highest possible meat quality is maintained. An optional long 200mm measurement tip means workers can deeply test the meat to ensure it is still at the right temperature while it is stored.
3) In refrigerated storerooms
Prior to the products going on sale to the general public in supermarkets, most products sit in refrigerated storerooms. During this time, it is important to keep the quality of the products high and any threat of bacteria low.
To achieve this, it is vital for businesses to constantly check the temperature of frozen products waiting to be put onto shelves. One of the benefits of the testo 105 – Frozen Food Thermometer is that there are two user-defined limit values so both temperature extremes can be monitored. This enables storeroom managers to set an upper and lower temperature value based on what the product is.For more information on the testo 105 – Frozen Food Thermometer, contact the expert team at Testo New Zealand today.
