Temperature Keep storerooms cool, dry and well ventilated. The cooler, the better. Temperature has more to do with how long well-dried foods store than anything else. There is probably a limit as to how far this statement can be taken, but a reasonable expectation of shelf life may be extrapolated from room temperature down to freezing.
No doubt, the inverse could also be considered true. Cool storage reduces respiratory activity and the degradation of enzymes; it reduces internal water loss and inhibits the growth of decay producing organisms, and in some foods such as fruits and root crops, it slows the production of ethylene, a naturally occurring ripening agent.
As part of maintaining optimal temperature, it is suggested that adequate ventilation should be provided some air exchange rate is absolutely essential. In addition, the storeroom should be free of un-insulated steam and water pipes, water heaters, transformers, refrigeration condensing units, steam generators or other heat producing equipment. Unless the storeroom is located in the desert, consider air conditioning or dehumidification during the most humid times of the year.
A second option is to use moisture impervious packaging. Ideally, there is no reason not to use both. Maintain stored foods in their original packages whenever possible. Most packaging is designed for the food it contains and will remain in good condition for their given shelf-life in the absence of temperature and humidity abuse. For instance, the cardboard box will help cushion jars and other glass containers from breakage. If original packaging is not practical, maintain the food in airtight containers, primarily to prevent the entry of insect and rodent pests and keep out other contaminants.
To take this to another level, consider oxygen as a major threat to the quality of food. The chances are that moisture-proof packaging is also airtight. Sunlight Avoid storing foods in direct sunlight. Fat-soluble vitamins, such as A, D, E and K are particularly sensitive to light degradation.
It is far better to block sunlight on windows and skylights and rely on artificial illumination for the time the storeroom is in use. Storage for Risk Reduction Store dry foods at least six inches off the floor and at least 18 inches away from outer walls to reduce the chances of condensation brought on by temperature differences between the container and the surface against which it rests, as well as to facilitate cleaning and pest control activities.
In the absence of rapid turnover of bulk palletized storage, consider placing the clean pallets on racks or blocks at least four inches six inches is preferable off the floor. This seemingly insignificant procedure goes a long way in preventing the harborage of pestilence, particularly rodents.
It is also suggested that a 2-ft. Set aside an area that is designated for damaged or rework products. Torn containers should be taped or otherwise secured to prevent entry of contaminants and prevent further spillage. If this practice is followed, a little more space is needed in the set-aside area. If any way possible, do not store economic poisons, cleaning supplies and other non-food items in the same storeroom as food without some physical barrier that separate the two.
I am also a strong proponent of storing look-alike condiments and other ingredients, such as salt and sugar, in spatially separate locations within a storeroom to avoid interchanging these products. Vermin To prevent the entry of insects, rodents and birds into the storeroom, doors and windows should be rodent and insect-proofed and kept closed whenever possible. Any opening to the outside should be sealed and all structural cracks and crevices promptly repaired.
Bait boxes, if needed, should be regularly monitored and any damaged bait boxes and spilled bait should be carefully cleaned up and removed. If fumigation is absolutely essential, rely only on experienced licensed control operators. Along these lines, the exterior of the building in which the storeroom is located should be maintained free of fire hazards, pest infestations and to preclude any security problems.
Size Finally, we come to size of the dry good storeroom. As with all storage considerations: size matters. Since the s, we have seen an almost geometric increase in single-use disposable products, including prepackaged ready-to-eat RTE foods, food utensils, cookware, housekeeping equipment and supplies, various paper goods, gloves and other personal hygiene packaging, waste containers—and the list goes on and on.
Economy bulk purchasing of nonperishable items, items procured by consumer expectations and demand and the changing marketplace of how retail food is structured has dramatically changed the need for storage space.
