Protecting the integrity of food.

The Center for Food Integrity (CFI) was established in 2007 as a non-profit organization that strives to build trust and confidence in our food system. The system covers farmers, food processors, universities, retailers, restaurants and other food companies. Awareness around food and food safety encourages food handlers to consistently provide the highest standards of care at all times. The distribution stage is a critical step in the process of getting food from soil to plate. This is where food is stored before it is transported to retail and other destinations.

Challenges to overcome.

Facilities such as warehouses give rise to a litany of potential food safety concerns. Inadequate temperature control, insufficient inspection or incorrect or lacking rotation of perishable products can lead to food spoilage. Especially products that are ‘cold chain’ and require stable cool temps. It is both costly and challenging to maintain a massive warehouse’s temperature at all times. There are, however, products that can assist you and make life a little easier.
