From the publication "Recommendations for Logistics Frozen Products, Frozen and Ice Cream, AECOC"
Technical as well as sanitary controls for food and food products that typically require freezing temperatures for preservation and alteration must be extended to the operations of the entire supply chain so that from the origin to the final time of consumption the product keeps its inherent qualities.
This requires establishing guidelines to ensure the proper treatment of the product at all stages of logistics chain and the organization needed between suppliers, customers, logistics operators and the consumer, in a coordinated manner, so as to meet the conditions required in each of the phases which include: collection, capture, slaughter, production, storage, transport, storage, and consumer. All of them must have adequate facilities where the product is kept under an artificial cooling system, for conservation purposes.
A cold chain must ensure that vaccines, from the manufacturing process through to patient immunization, are maintained at the required temperatures.
