Maintaining the fabric of a building’s cold storage facility is critical to ensure it operates at peak performance, particularly where perishable items are stored.
Poor maintenance, whether through wear and tear of the fabric or a faulty seal, can result in excessive energy consumption, spoiled goods, increased carbon impact and direct financial consequences that hit the bottom line.
These effects are compounded when storing for third parties, which may involve damage to a company’s reputation as well as consequential loss and potential compensation for loss of profits claimed by distributors and retailers.
Food retailers like Morrisons, Costco are dependent on areas with efficient chiller rooms for meat, deli and rotisserie preparation, as well as freezers for bakery products in order to offer a good customer experience. If a cold store cannot be used, the company would suffer considerable financial loss through disruption to trade.
In this white paper, ISD Solutions explores some of the issues encountered in cold store maintenance and management, and how a planned maintenance programme may be the solution.
