Hi,plz note down the temperature for the followings i will send Relative humidity data later:

1. Fermentation Area  TEMPERATURE 33-35 C

2. Packing Room for Chocolate Enrobed TEMPERATURE 15-20 C

3. trolley work- marshmallow & Cream TEMPERATURE 20-25 C

4. Normal Packaging Area - Biscuits 25-27 C

5. Normal Packaging Area - wafer 25-27 C

For efficient control you can baricade the areas with acrylic sheet partitioning and can use good AHUs/HVAC system.

Hi Rasika,

In terms of Chocolate, care should be taken on two fronts:-

(a) Fat Bloom - if the packing hall is above 20 Deg C you run the risk of melting & then reforming the wrong crystal structure

(b) Sugar Bloom - care should be taken to ensure the product isn't stored below the Dew Point (there are on line calculators - you'll need the moistures & temperatures to calculate) - this will then result in Sugar Bloom on the surface as it comes back out of solution from the condensate

Kind regards
