Title: Monitoring Mushroom Temperature in the Chill Chain
Author: T.R. Gormley

Abstract:

Monitoring mushroom temperature m the chill chain is a major component of the comprehensive quality assurance programmes operated by the Irish mushroom industry. Tests with recording temperature probes have identified weak links in the chill chain at farm, packhouse and transport level. The pinpointing of these deficiencies and the testing of the cooling performance of the various systems used has enabled codes of practice to be drawn up which ensure the correct operation of the chill chain for Irish mushrooms.
