Thermal management is crucial to processing, storing and delivering several types of snacks and baked goods. The latest systems cover a wide range of functions, including chilling dough, cooling product after exiting the oven, and refrigerating or freezing finished product. Specialized cold storage facilities also are part of the mix.
Food safety and hygiene are key factors driving new developments in thermal-management equipment. Given market trends, keeping product fresh is more important than ever. Demand for better-for-you options featuring minimally processed ingredients continues to increase. These criteria often dictate requirements for cold-storage capabilities that provide secure, short-term preservation of goods, and ensure quick delivery to distributors and consumers.
