One of the most important food safety precautions is keeping the Cold Chain intact. Since 2001 when we first started we noticed many fresh poultry suppliers giving scant consideration to this very important food safety concern. The delivery truck is extremely important in our hot climate. Our truck runs at - 5 degrees celcius. Yes, it is below freezing point, but what many suppliers do not realise is that each time the truck stops and unloads, the surface temperature of the meat product is affected, allowing for the growth of bacteria.
