  • As an alternative to forced-air precooling, warm loading of citrus fruit into refrigerated containers for cooling during marine transport was explored. This practice could provide several logistic and economic savings. Although successful for resilient citrus fruits, the cooling process and performance of ambient loading have not been explored in a systematic manner. There is still a considerable potential to optimise the implementation of the technique and to apply it to more sensitive citrus… CONTINUE READING
