Cold Chain Compliance

Cold chain compliance is a food safety term used to describe supply chains that work with temperature-sensitive products known as cold chains, which are required to be compliant with the rules of their country or region of origin. This includes maintaining the correct temperature range for a product throughout a given cold chain, as well as proper storage during and after transportation. For example, perishable meat and poultry products are generally kept cold (40° or below) or frozen (0° or below) during transport from the plant to a refrigerated warehouse or retail store to prevent rapid growth of pathogenic bacteria.
