Star Refrigeration and Starfrost are working with the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE) to publish a series of articles in their Cold Chain Supplement looking at the involvement of refrigeration in bringing food from the field to the dinner plate.
In the third of four articles, Star’s Group Sales & Marketing Director, Rob Lamb, looks at the cold chain from the field to the supermarket, covering different designs for storage facilities and the refrigeration systems used to maintain temperature. India is the second largest producer of fruit and vegetables in the world and precooling solutions will help to improve product quality and shelf life. The last article, to be published later this year, will cover retail cooling systems.
Group company Starfrost, who design and manufacture inline freezing and cooling equipment for food processing applications, have formed a joint venture with Star Coolers and Condensers Pvt. Ltd., based in Jalgaon, Maharashtra, to design and manufacture inline solutions for the Indian and far east markets.
