• wrap up the food in aluminium foil or polythene and make sure that the packages
are airtight;
• do not allow fresh, unfrozen food to touch
food which is already frozen, thus avoiding
a rise in temperature of the latter;
• lean foods store better and longer than
fatty ones; salt reduces the storage life of
• water ices, if consumed immediately after
removal from the freezer compartment,
