SQF 12.6.2, cold storage, Freezing and Chilling of Foods


Best Answer Taralynn, 23 July 2019 - 06:29 PM

Hello Gomez, 

 

I too, work in Cold Storage and what I have been advised this means is that our units (condensers) are able to provide the necessary freezing and/or chilling, and is accessible for cleaning. 

 

Do you monitor your units remotely or take daily temperature readings throughout the day to prove that the units are cooling/chilling the room to the necessary temperature? 

 

I hope this gives you a better understanding of what the requirements are referring to.

standards ? I dont know, how embarassing me not knowing, Its just im just the helper and I'm doing my best in getting information. 

storage and distribution edition 8

module 12

products we store are : meat bread fish vegetable hamburgers and strawberry puree 

scope of certification: 26 storage of Food products

I think I just need a working doc not a SOP. By my understanding its asking me to prove what are we using to keep our coolers cold.
