• Ensure that the packaging is not damaged (frozen food in
damaged packaging may have deteriorated). If the package
is swollen or has damp patches, it may not have been
stored under optimal conditions and defrosting may have
already begun.
• Transport products in a thermally insulated cool bag.
• When shopping, leave frozen food purchases until last.
• Once at home, place the frozen foods immediately in the
