Perishability challenges produce farmers and processors daily, requiring insulated facilities with controlled temperatures to prevent spoilage.

With perishability as the number one complication facing produce farmers and processors, the battle against spoilage happens daily. To avoid spoilage and rotting, these farmers and processors need a reliable insulating fruit and vegetable facility, designed to support the controlled temperature needs of produce processing.  

Produce Processing Walk-in Coolers & Freezers 

Speed and freshness are the keys to brand success. From the field to freezer, a farmer needs to know that their products can be kept at the right temperature throughout the handling process. No matter the process – cooling, freezing, blast freezing, or packaging, they all demand specific temperatures. PermaTherm’s IMPs are able to meet those demands by delivering a flexible, airtight, watertight thermal system through every stage of produce processing.  

Our insulated metal panels can support any phase of complex fruit and vegetable processing including: 

  • Bagged Salads: Bagged salads require a low temperature facility where workers chop, blend, bag, and ship with multiple package components included. These processes require varying temperatures, UV enhancements, high humidity, and spray. 
  • Onions: Onions primarily need cool, dark, dry rooms to prevent mold and sprouting. 
  • Mushrooms: Mushrooms need exceptionally high humidity to thrive and are susceptible to speedy deterioration. Because of the natural bacteria and fungi in the mushroom, temperatures must be kept cool and consistent to slow down potential spoilage. 
  • Ready-to-Cook Produce: Blast freezing rooms have specific thermal needs for delivering ready-to-eat products to frozen food sections of the market.
