5 Tips for Successful Food Storage
- Quality of products. Obtain the top grade whenever possible.
- Proper containers. Usually metal storage cans or heavy plastic containers with air tight lids are best, depending on your climate.
- Storage facilities. Areas that will permit easy access usability, and temperature control are best.
- 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.
- 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most fundamental point to a successful Food Storage program in preventing spoilage and minimizing loss of food to going out of date.
