Hello fellow members,

 

I work at a chocolate/ pastry factory in extremely hot, South Florida. I am creating daily refrigeration logs for our delivery vans. Our vans delivery to our retail stores with locations about 2 hours apart.

The van temp isn't really a huge issue as a large bulk of our products are room temperature but we do have refrigerated pastries.

In preparing for SQF, I need a set point before loading the vehicles. Does anyone have insight what the delivery temperature set point should be?

 

Bonus points if you have any sources stating specifics. 

 

Thank you and have a great Tuesday!

Michael

38-42.

 

We are in the process of getting ready to move back to South Florida - looking forward to hot days once again!

Nice Glenn! I'm in Fort Myers and it's already in the 90s. :death:

 

So you believe we should set the point between 38-42 and have the vans reach this temp before allowing them to begin loading?

 

Thank you

The USDA suggests storing cold foods at 40 degrees F or below and hot foods at 140 degrees F or above 
Between 40 degrees and 140 degrees F, is considered the temperature danger zone, especially between 60 to 140 degrees F, where there is a rapid growth of bacteria and the production of toxins.

 

If you don't precool the delivery vehicles, you may end up with sweating on your pastry ruining it from a quality standpoint 

 

BTW, I'm in southern Ontario Canada, today was the first morning I haven't had to scrape my windshield in the morning and we had snow last week

From google -

 

Keep the refrigerator temperature at or below 40° F (4° C). The freezer temperature should be 0° F (-18° C).Feb
