Meats and poultry need temperature monitored trucks for safe transport

“Thanksgiving fun fact: According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 45 million turkeys are cooked and eaten in the U.S. at Thanksgiving—that’s one sixth of all turkeys sold in the U.S. each year. American per capita consumption of turkeys has soared from 8.3 pounds in 1975 to 18.5 pounds in 1997.”

Safe transportation of meats and poultry

He most important thing to consider when transporting perishable meats and poultry is hot to prevent pathogenic bacteria from growing. This is done by keeping the cargo cold at 40° or below, or all the way frozen at 0° or below. Maintaining a consistent temperature during transport, from the turkey farm to the retail store or warehouse is the key to protecting your product and ensuring that it stays fresh.
