15.3.3   Chilled storage of foodstuffs
Chilled storage of highly perishable foodstuffs restricts the activity of microorganisms and retards biochemical reactions.
Reducing temperature doubles or triples the storage life of foodstuffs such that, by providing product-specific temperature and humidity/moisture conditions during transport, chilled goods can be treated as fresh foodstuffs after transport.
