At the begin­ning of Sep­tem­ber 2017, the kick-off event for DIN SPEC 91360 — “Tem­pe­ra­tu­re con­cept for the ship­ment of ref­ri­gera­ted and non-ref­ri­gera­ted goods in the food online tra­de” — took place in Berlin.

The mem­bers of the con­sor­ti­um inclu­de food retailers, coo­ling sys­tem deve­lo­pers, logistics spe­cia­lists, pack­a­ging tech­ni­ci­ans as well as tes­ting insti­tu­tes, rese­arch insti­tu­tes, asso­cia­ti­ons and con­su­mer repre­sen­ta­ti­ves. By spring 2018, a new stan­dard will be deve­lo­ped for the ship­ping of ref­ri­gera­ted foodstuffs.

DIN SPEC 91360 is aimed pri­ma­ri­ly at online food retailers who ship fresh and chil­led food to end con­su­mers. The main focus of the stan­dard will be on tem­pe­ra­tu­re con­trol mecha­nisms to ensu­re and map an unin­ter­rup­ted cold chain. The goal is to incre­a­se con­su­mer con­fi­dence in online food ordering.

Land­pack brings to the con­sor­ti­um its years of expe­ri­ence in the deve­lo­p­ment of sui­ta­ble and sus­tainab­le insu­la­ted pack­a­ging as well as, in the field of ship­ping ref­ri­gera­ted food­s­tuffs and tem­pe­ra­tu­re monitoring.
