SmartWash and Cold Chain

Your double protection against bacteria, contaminants and spoilage. Fresh produce may start its journey to the table at ground level but it won’t bring any ground along for the ride!

SmartWash

Today’s produce processors assure debris and contaminants get cleaned on their way to become a value added, or ready to serve item. Modern farmers defend against pathogens using scientific monitoring of critical risk points such as transient animals, ground water and accepted practices in worker hygene.
A dynamic food safety step was developed by Taylor Farms, supplier of SNOBOY leafy green salads.

Their practices govern harvesting, transfer, inspection, cooling and sanitization in continuous line control. After a 2006 outbreak in illness, an entire new layer of industry safety measures was adopted to reduce the risk of E. coli contamination. But for Bruce Taylor, Founder and CEO of Taylor Farms, the new rules didn’t go far enough. There was something missing, so he brought together a team of experts to find an even better solution to the problem.

After years of testing, experts found the answer in a scientific breakthrough named SmartWash. The system is now being used on produce wash lines in seven countries, including Mexico, Australia, China and New Zealand!

Cold Chain

GraphicA cold chain or cool chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of refrigerated production, storage and distribution activities, along with associated equipment and logistics, which maintain a desired low-temperature range. It is used to preserve and to extend and ensure the shelf life of products, such as fresh agricultural produce, seafood, frozen food, and pharmaceutical drugs.Unlike other goods or merchandise, cold chain goods are perishable and always en route towards end use or destination.

Unique to fresh produce cargoes, the cold chain requires additionally maintained product specific environment parameters which include air quality levels (carbon dioxide, oxygen, humidity and others), which makes this the most complicated cold chain to operate.

Maintaining the Cold Chain

The cold chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Products must stay cold from harvest to consumer or shelf-life will suffer. As a distributor, Food Services of America pays attention to all the details to ensure optimum temperature of products is maintained throughout the entire distribution process.

Temperatures are monitored on all produce and perishable products in our warehouses. Shipments that arrive on our docks outside acceptable temperature limits are rejected on the spot. We also use mobile temperature recording devices on highly perishable loads to ensure the quality and safety of products.

Reminder: When breaking the ‘cold chain’ you risk a rapid rate in product spoilage and bacteria growth. Keep all proteins, dairy product and fresh produce in a constant 33-36-degree range!

Don’t take the risk of breaking the chain and dealing with the aftermath of potential health related issues. Food Services of America professionals are trained in the proper distribution, handling and storage of cold chain impacted products and are available to help answer questions and identify any potential problems.

The FSA Cold Chain

From farm to fork, Food Services of America monitors transportation temperature then verifies the specified temperature upon arrival and distribution to our customers.

COLD SPECIFICATIONS

The cold chain plays a monumental role in the importance of uncompromised food safety and quality as it travels through sectors that include farming, food processing and transportation/distribution. Temperature requirements for many chilled (refrigerated) foods are identified.
