Cold chain HACCP Protocol

Take it to the next level

Need to take your fresh produce cold chain HACCP/ISO/Health & Safety protocols to the next level & reduce your carbon footprint in the process?

Assumption ….

If the end goal of your business philosophy is to deliver a fresh, safe, affordable, appetizing food product that has Five Star Quality radiating from it …….

…..then you are invited to continue with this presentation …..

What needs to be done? …

Recognise that your cold chain HACCP/ISO/Health & Safety protocols may require an overhaul, if the shelf life of your cold chain produce, is to be significantly extended!

You are losing Big Bucks $$$…..Why?

So what’s the problem with a typical cold chain?


  • During peak work shifts, hot air entering a cold chain, creates excess moisture which wets the internal air, which in turn wets the contents of the cold room
  • Conversely, during off-peak shifts, the evaporator fans dry out the air resulting in cold room fresh produce having to give up moisture, causing shrinking, shrivelling and loss of quality
  • Ethylene gas kick starts the ripening process of sensitive fresh produce leading to a shorter shelf life & eventual food spoilage
  • Fresh hanging meat begins to lose weight & condition
  • Airborne bacteria settles on wet produce giving rise to mould, yeast & bacterial growth

Familiar sight in cold chains?

Consider improving your Cold Chain HACCP/ISO/Health & Safety protocols by:

  • removing ethylene gas
  • removing airborne bacteria
  • maintaining humidity above 78%
  • maintaining desired temperature

… in your cold chain even if produce is only kept for a few hours in cold storage.

How – are you asking?


By installing Sorbite Filters

A 100% natural mineral humidity & bacteria control filter which will:

  • maintain humidity between 78% & 88% by absorbing excess moisture & desorbing same when air becomes too dry
  • absorb & retain ethylene & pectin gases
  • absorb & retain acetic acid in butchery cold rooms
  • absorb & retain airborne bacteria (including staphylococcus aureus – the only airborne food poisoning bacteria)

Resulting in no or significantly less fresh produce, fresh meat, fresh fish, bakery products from

  • losing weight
  • spoiling
  • wilting &
  • trimming wastage

How do Sorbite filters work?


The filters are exchanged by Sorbite personnel every 4 weeks to remove the food spoilage gases & airborne bacteria that have accumulated in the mineral.

What do they look like?

(size of a laptop)

The Sorbite mineral is contained in a polypropylene bag which rests in an aluminium or plastic tray fitted with magnets.
The number of filters per cold room is determined by the size of the cold room, type of produce in cold storage and average stock holding.
(MSDS available on request)

Sorbite filters are attached to the ceiling of cold rooms

With magnets, no drilling required


Any proof that they work?

Selected local testimonial goes like this:

I am very pleased with the installation of Polar Africa’s filters in all of our fridges, not only has it increased our product life span as well as its yield usage, we further reduced our wastage and improved our financial bottom line. – Executive Sous Chef – Durban International Convention Centre

HACCP expert’s opinion:

MICHAEL PURCELL – IRELAND – HACCP CONSULTANT commenting on a sorbite filter, marketed under the HUMITECH/BIOSMART brand in the UK, IN 2009:

My first experience of this incredible product was in witnessing the extra shelf life of fresh cauliflower & broccoli. A staggering 3 weeks with the produce remaining perfect. With practically no humidity in the fridge the cleanliness was really great. I would have no hesitation in recommending this product as a vital tool in HACCP implementation.

Investment required


Sorbite Filters are only available as a monthly rental, as the mineral has to be exchanged once a month by Polar Africa personnel, to have the food spoilage gases and airborne bacteria removed from the mineral the mineral covers its monthly service fee over and over by reducing food wastage by between 75% and 100%!

Immediate benefits?

  • Qualitative condition of all fresh produce (fruit, herbs, vegetables, fresh fish, fresh meat, pastry, cakes, dairy products, etc.) will be retained during cold storage; cold chain will be free of airborne bacteria & food spoilage gases; internal air will be fresh and crisp with no odours; and trimming losses will be minimized
  • Expect an increased retail shelf life of between 2 and 4 fold (depending on the type, grade, and quality of the perishable produce)
  • Fresh produce deliveries can be reduced to once or twice a week (depending on holding a capacity of cold room/s) as perishable stocks will last far longer than the norm!
