Rules for storing products in the warehouse. As a warehouse we understand a large, separate space for food storage. Usually only organizations that distribute food every day administrate a warehouse.

Each product should be stored in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging.

Temperature and humidity

There are types of food and animal products that require storage at a properly adjusted humidity or temperature. Therefore, a facility storing this type of goods should be equipped with: humidity sensors, a drying system, temperature sensors, heating and air conditioning. If a given food product requires storage at a controlled low temperature, the warehouse must be equipped with closed cold stores.

Racks and shelves

Smooth surface. A porous and uneven structure would favor the accumulation of dirt and the multiplication of germs. They must be illuminated and described.


However, it is not recommended to use “fluorescent lamps”, and if such lighting is necessary, the warehouse manager should install special covers. This is due to the tendency of fluorescent lamps to explode, which in turn carries the risk that undesirable materials (e.g. glass from a broken lamp) will get into food products. Where possible, it is recommended to install LED lighting
