S.J. James and C. James,     Food Refrigeration and Process Engineering Research Centre (FRPERC), UK

Abstract:

This chapter begins by discussing the importance of maintaining the cold chain for the microbiological safety and quality of foods. The specific stages of the cold chain (chilling freezing storage transport and retail display) are then discussed in detail. Environmental issues and advances in energy reduction are also discussed. Finally a section is included on the practical and theoretical factors that need to be considered by food producers/suppliers when specifying refrigeration systems for the food supply chain
