Looking to Aerospace to Save Produce

February 08, 2020

Protect the produce.

Among the numerous commodities we handle, Lineage receives crops from farmers and brings them straight into our facilities for storage before they are transported to supermarkets worldwide. First things first, Lineage cools the fresh product from field temperature to frozen via blast freezing, an essential step in the cold chain process that has been practiced for generations. Once placed in big rooms called blast freezers, we “blast” very cold air (between -35F and -25F to be exact) through the product, effecting the freezing process and allowing for safe storage and transport.
