5 Tips for Successful Food Storage

5 Tips for Successful Food Storage

  1. Quality of products. Obtain the top grade whenever possible.

  1. Proper containers. Usually metal storage cans or heavy plastic containers with air tight lids are best, depending on your climate.

  1. Storage facilities. Areas that will permit easy access usability, and temperature control are best.

  1. Temperature. Foods store best at from 40 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Foods may be stored in a higher temperature range, but the shelf life diminishes in proportion to the higher temperature.

  1. Rotation. Rotation is the most fundamental point to a successful Food Storage program in preventing spoilage and minimizing loss of food to going out of date.
