THE BENEFITS AND USES OF PROJECTED PRODUCT TEMPERATURE IN THE COLD CHAIN

TUES 10 NOV 12:30 – 13:15

In this session we are joined by Stephen Osman of Procuro Euro who will discuss the benefits and uses of projected product temperature in the cold chain.

  • PIMM continuous temperature monitoring
  • What happens when temperature violation occurs and the process of identifying how different products will be affected.
  • Explanation of the mean kinetic temperature (MKT) calculation and how we use it with our algorithm for projected product temperature.
  • Key features of PIMM PPT.
  • Frozen and chilled product profiling.
  • How our validation process is carried out to prove the PPT process.
  • Artificial intelligence for predicting product shelf life.

THE RENEWED CLIMATE CHANGE AGREEMENT FOR COLD STORES
