Choose Freezer Packs for Optimal Freshness

by | Jun 28, 2013 | Business and Economy

When mailing perishable food, regardless of how close the recipient lives to you, it’s imperative that you use a warming or freezer pack for it to remain edible. Many are leery about shipping or receiving food via mail, but most foods can retain their freshness as long as they’re packaged correctly. Whether you’re shipping homemade desserts to relatives over the holidays or filling an order for your gourmet food business, warming and freezer packs help keep the contents at a suitable temperature. They’re safe, non-toxic, and easy to use, which makes them ideal for anything from packing lunchboxes to preparing parcels.

Excellent for Businesses
Many food oriented companies do their business by mail, and send edible products to customers in various locations. If you’re employed at or own a business that regularly mails edible goods to customers, it’s very likely that you may already use cold bricks and freezer packs. If not, consider the benefits and even the necessity of doing so. You want to provide the highest customer satisfaction possible, and for your clientele to think highly of your business. Freezer packs can keep perishable foods cold for 2-3 days. If you’re shipping during the winter months and don’t want your food to end up frozen, heated packs can keep edibles at a safe temperature.

Simple Yet Effective
Cold bricks and freezer packs can be made from various types of materials, including foam. Foam refrigerants are beneficial as they can be re-frozen, or even re-heated, numerous times and don’t wear out easily. Generally, when used properly, a freezer pack can keep packaged foods at a temperature that falls between 32 degrees F and 60 degrees F. If you need to keep food completely frozen while it’s in transit, using cold packs equal to twice the weight of the contents will get the job done. To simply keep food temperate, using packs equal to the exact weight of the edibles is the best solution.
