Storing and distributing Dry-Aged meats should be done with the utmost respect and care, to preserve the impressive quality and appearance of the meat. To do this, specialist equipment is essential.
The importance of temperature control
Dry Aging is a unique and complex process that requires very specific temperatures and humidity levels to achieve the best possible outcome. As companies are dealing with raw meat products, this long and drawn-out process can result in dangerous bacterial growth if strict procedures and conditions are not adhered to.
Once Dry-Aged meat is in storage and waiting to be distributed, these condition requirements change very little. For a perfect result that’s free from taste or texture damage and contamination, commercial Dry Aging coolers with temperature controls are essential.
Temperature controlled units offer businesses a safe and hygienic atmosphere for Dry-Aged meat on a commercial scale. A low temperature atmosphere slows the development of harmful bacteria which would otherwise be rife after only a few days, ensuring that meat is well Aged and safe to consume.
Whether you’re a meat manufacturer or commercial distributor, finding the right equipment will ensure the taste, appearance and texture of your Dry Aged meat does not change, as well as ensuring it meets all the correct safety and hygiene standards.
