ThermaFreeze Products a Vital Link in Cold Chain Shipping
ThermaFreeze Products Corporation (Pink Sheets:TFZP). Suppliers of perishable goods - from strawberries to the shipment of pharmaceuticals, clinical samples, and chemicals - now have a cost-effective solution that will help in reducing the waste in the supply chain. For the past several years, there has been a growing awareness that inadequate temperature management throughout the cold chain is harming the safety and quality of the food supply. The cold chain is growing in length and complexity. It has become evident that new technology is needed especially since distribution of perishable products involves packages going to many locations.
The cold chain, by definition is any supply chain that has temperature sensitive material in it, either perishables or other goods that can have their own product specifications altered by temperature. Produce, certain pharmaceuticals, dairy products, bread, and frozen foods are shipped through the cold chain. The average food product travels hundreds, even thousands of miles before it reaches a consumer's plate. As a result, there are many areas throughout the cold chain where problems could occur.
For suppliers of temperature-sensitive goods, a properly functioning cold chain is critical to the successful sale of their product. By law, manufacturers have to ship products at a certain temperature, and that temperature has to be maintained throughout the supply chain to the point where the customer receives it. A failure at any point in the cold chain can lead to losses, product returns, and extra freight costs.
ThermaFreeze's overall solution is revolutionizing the cold chain system in terms of shipping options, cost savings, reliability and higher standards. Loss and damage of perishable goods during storage and transportation is estimated by industry sources of up to 35 percent of all perishable freight and is considered common.
In addressing packaging, the goal was to produce a thin-wall, low-weight packaging material with ultra-high thermal protection. All packaging components are non-toxic and safe. They can be used without any restrictions in all markets and for all perishable goods, and also for medical-pharmaceutical items. Target groups for the products are companies and organizations with a high demand for temperature-controlled cold chain systems: airlines, logistics companies, laboratories, non-profit organizations.
ThermaFreeze Products Corporation (http://www.thermafreeze.com) with product, process and system patents is a solutions-based company for shipment of perishables, including frozen and refrigerated food items and pharmaceutical preparations. The company's products replace wet ice and gel packs for in-transit temperature control. Through advanced cold chain research, development, experience and perishable field testing, ThermaFreeze has developed an economically feasible solution for manufacturers and distributors.
