Frigo Mekanik and Frigoblock Cooling Systems Board member Levent Aydin, the wrong application in any stage of the chain is caused by loss of weight, loss of quality and losses in the product of the audits by stating that the negativity In case of detection, it is imperative that the deterrent penalties be applied.
Frigo Mechanical and Frigoblock Cooling Systems Board member Levent Aydin, a weakness in any ring of the cold chain is directly affecting food security by stating that the issue of the only food companies to leave the pleasure of Said it is not possible to be followed with extremely serious inspections.
Corporate structure of all the food companies that have given importance to the subject, indicating that they have sufficient level of consciousness and labor, Aydin, but the idea of providing commercial gain with the reason of unconsciousness as the bottom of the stairway to production And the cold chain could form weaknesses. Aydin, “These inspections, as a result of the determination of negativity is necessary to implement deterrent penalties,” he said.
It was published in the Official Gazette last October and is currently running by the Ministry of Commerce in the communiqué of all vegetable fruit products; Pre-cooling, storing in cold stores, transportation with chilled vehicles and refrigerated in the display is predicted to be exposed to the Aydın, with the implementation of the communion between 25-40 percent of the vegetable-fruit fire They predicted that the amount could decrease and reduce severe price fluctuations.
What is the risk of infecting people with disease in the event of degradation of food products? So which foods should be more sensitive?
In fact, the preservation and consumption of all food ingredients outside the healthy conditions creates adverse effects for human health. However, there are some foods in which they are not preserved in appropriate conditions and subsequently consumed is directly caused by poisoning, such as food poisoning can produce bad results that can reach the death. examples include; Meat, eggs, mussels, oysters, some vegetables and fruits can be considered unpasteurized milk.
What should be considered for long-term storage of products in terms of food safety?
There are some methods for long-term preservation of food products. As an example, we can consider the preservation of the cold, freezing, preserving, dry-preserving, canned preservation methods. All of them have different features. If we take the subject in the cold, we can say the following.
Almost all products except dry food products require a cold condition. Meat, milk, fish, vegetables, fruit products can be counted in this context. Storing the products under cold conditions will keep the micro-organism reproduction under pressure and protect the product under a certain period of time. However, the enclosure time differs in each product, and the conditions of the enclosure differ according to the product. Although products such as meat, chicken, fish are kept fresh for a few days, some products such as apples, potatoes can be kept fresh for up to 1 year. In some products, the enclosure temperature is changing, and some products may require moisture control, ethylene control and carbon dioxide control. In addition, some products require fast cooling. Consequently, the retained conditions for each product must be provided and maintained within the time allowed by that product character.
What are the most mistakes that are made when food is delivered from the field to the consumer?
Product tracking starts with fields and seeds. These basic factors are appropriate; When the plantation, field maintenance, spraying, irrigation factors are provided in ideal conditions, the appropriate product will be provided. After this phase, proper harvesting with appropriate machine equipment or manpower must be ensured and delivered to the warehouse under proper packaging and proper shipping conditions of the product being harvested. Some products are shipped directly from the field or from the greenhouses to the consumption point. However, many products are shipped to the cold storage facility. Pre-cooling is applied in the facility and stored in appropriate packaging and in appropriate storage conditions. The pre-shipment variation-grading-packaging operation is applied and shipped to the point of sale with refrigerated vehicles. Point of Sale If it is a supermarket, first the products are lowered to the supermarket’s cold storage, then it is taken to the refrigerated stores within the market and reaches the end consumer. This process should be done under the required conditions. In any stage of this chain, the faulty application will cause weight loss, loss of quality and losses in the product. It may cause the product to deteriorate and be discarded before it reaches its final consumer.
Do food companies show the attention needed for cold weather systems? Can you assess the status of SMEs on this issue?
It will not be right to genera topic. I can say that all the food companies working in the institutional structure have given importance to the subject and they have sufficient level of consciousness and labour force. However, as the ladder is down to production, it can be said that weakness can occur in the cold chain with the reason of unconsciousness or the idea of providing commercial earnings. It is not only possible to leave this topic to the pleasure of food companies. Must be followed by extremely serious audits of the relevant public institutions. After these inspections, it is imperative that deterrent penalties be applied as a result of the determination of negativity.
Why are cold weather systems important in terms of food safety?
Food safety is a matter of direct concern to the health of the community. A weakness that can occur in any ring of the cold chain will directly affect food safety. From time to time, we are witnessing cases of poisoning, where the mass food consumption, such as schools, work places, military facilities, is found. This situation is caused by great loss of work and cost losses beyond the effect of human health.
What is the technological situation in Turkey in cold weather systems?
There are currently approximately 8,000 cold storage tanks in Turkey, which have been established for the purpose of storing only fruit and vegetables. Some of these warehouses represent contemporary technology. However, most of the warehouses are designed with old technology. Cold air systems are part of an engineering operation and HVAC-R industry. The HVAC-R sector is currently in Turkey; The HVAC-R Assembly, which operates under the TOBB, is an industry that has completed the work of institutionalization together with the exporters Union, the Education Foundation, the producers associations. The sector exports about $5 billion and carries out successful projects all over the world. Our corporate refrigeration companies, which are part of this sector, are not behind the world’s developed countries as production and engineering capabilities. However, the production of sub-staircases in our sector has not yet been prevented. If our entrepreneurs who invest in cold storage will make contact with the corporate companies of our sector, the outcome is to be successful.
Can you give information about the different applications that bring innovation to the sector in cold air systems of your company?
There are three main headings in the industrial refrigeration systems that have been highlighted in recent years. Energy efficiency, environmental sensitivity and product safety. When we take the basic aim of these three issues in our projects, the Cascade systems, which are used as refrigerants, are kept in the machine room and the cold storage tanks are sent with carbon dioxide or glychol water. The first investment cost is a little higher-the above-mentioned advantages of this system makes it preferable.
Will there be a new investment next semester?
We are a company that has completed our integration in industrial refrigeration. Our recent investments will be mainly opened to new markets.
What is the effect of the comming of the sector concerning the industry?
It was published in the Official Gazette last October and is currently being run by the Ministry of Commerce in the communiqué of all vegetable fruit products; Pre-cooling, storage in cold storage, refrigerated vehicles are expressed in the transportation of provinces and refrigerated in the aisle. The sector Commission, which was established by the TOBB HVAC-R assembly and contributed by all industry associations, also supports the Ministry’s efforts to determine the subheadings of this communion and to clear the principles of implementation. With the completion of these studies and the implementation of the application will decrease the amount of waste between 25-40 percent in the subject of vegetable and fruit, the fluctuation of severe price and the product prices will remain at a more appropriate level. At the same time, a higher quality product will be provided to the final consumer. For this reason, all sector stakeholders in industrial refrigeration support this study.
