The PPECB ensures that produce leaving the country is handled, stored and transported at optimum temperatures and conditions.
Cold chain management is a vital link in the export value chain and as such cold storage units play an integral role in ensuring the quality of produce intended for export is maintained. In line with this it is essential that cold stores comply with the minimum food safety and technical requirements for food storage. Should produce intended for export be stored or handled the relevant cold store must be registered with the PPECB. In order to be registered cold stores must undergo annual inspections and certification.
