Hi all,

 

Need your advise, Does any know if US FDA has any specify requirement for chilled juice transportation to USA?

 

I am not sure if I control as usual transportation practice BUT control temperature in container to keep chill condition is it enough?

 

If anyone have the requirement,  would be great if you can share.

 

Thanks,

 

Nuch

Technically no.  Even under the Juice HACCP FDA rule there is no mention of temperature control in bulk shipment of juice.  However, whenever bulk is received at a facility it must undergo a 5-log reduction method.

 

https://www.fda.gov/.../ucm2006803.htm

"3. The entire 5-log process must occur under one firm's control and in one processing facility, i.e., all steps from 

Start Printed Page 6140fruit receiving to final juice packaging (and all points included in the 5-log reduction process) must occur at one facility. If processors transport fruit or juice to another facility for extraction, blending, or final packaging, the 5-log reduction must be accomplished in the second facility

 

Because juice in tanker trucks is not juice in a final package form, juice shipped in bulk tankers must undergo a 5-log reduction process after transport and prior to final fill and packaging.
