Checking cold chain and DIN SPEC 91360

In Germany, the Tentamus Group has developed a concept for online food retailing that checks a safe cold chain in accordance with DIN SPEC 91360.

In the food sector online trade is continuing to grow and consumers are not only wanting products that do not require refrigeration. There are increasing demands for chilled and deep-frozen foods in online retailing. Along with this consumers are also expecting deliveries in environmentally friendly and sustainable food packaging materials.

A valid and efficient cold chain is essential if chilled and frozen goods are to remain safe for consumption.

Already established online retailers can save costs by optimising their cold chain. The insulation material and the type and quantity of the cooling medium are decisive. Switching to environmentally friendly insulation can also lead to increased customer satisfaction as the issues of regionality and sustainability grow. In addition, the optimisation of the cold chain makes it possible to supply even more customers.

In the area of national standards, the focus is on online dispatch, as DIN SPEC 91360, a set of rules for the online trading of food, which among other things deals with the validation of the cold chain, was drawn up in 2018.

The Tentamus Group helps clients develop, optimise and validate their cold chains.
