If you are in the food retail and food service industry, you would definitely understand the importance of the quality of perishable items. Perishable goods including seafood, meat, vegetables, fruits, cooked or ready-to-eat food, etc. have limited shelf-life after harvest. Therefore, they need to be refrigerated or frozen to preserve them and keep them safe for consumption for a prolonged period of time.
Product quality as well as environmental factors such as storage temperature, relative humidity, the concentration of gases, presence of decaying microorganisms can have a direct impact on their storage and shelf-life. Here, cold chain solutions such as step-in chillers and freezers can be a proven solution to your challenges.
Too high a temperature can increase the respiration rate and the growth of microorganisms, leading to food spoilage in just a few hours or days. Whereas, low temperatures can cause cold injuries, resulting in a food item that is not suitable for marketing.
However, perishable items when stored at an appropriate temperature and ambient conditions can be preserved at high quality for weeks, months, or even years (in the case of frozen food).
Hence, refrigeration plays a critical role in avoiding food loss. Especially, when globalisation has enabled the movement of fresh produce across the globe to meet the demand of consumers for a wide variety of fresh produce, businesses need to invest in effective refrigeration solutions.

Step-in chillers and freezers are compact cooling and storage units with adjustable or fixed racks.
Here is the primary difference between a step-in chiller and a freezer.
Some providers offer a combination of step-in chiller and step-in freezer in a single unit, which maintains different temperature zones and are suitable for a variety of products.
