Mobile Catering Transporting Refrigerated Food
I have just registered my new catering business and I am in the process of getting my van ready to start trading in a month or so.
I have a couple of questions in regards to the storage and transportation of refrigerated food.
I have 2 domestic electric under counter fridges in my truck which will be powered by a generator but what do I do to keep the food at the correct temperature during transportation?
Also, when the van is not being used, is it advisable to connect my van to my household electricity supply so that the fridges are constantly on or do most people leave the fridges off and store refrigerated stock in another fridge in their house for example?
If you use a fridge in your house, what are the implications as far as the environmental health/inspections etc. Also if you do turn off the fridges in the van, surely it takes a certain amount of time for them to reach the required temperature once you park up and connect them to the generator?
Thanks in advance
