Shipping chocolate can be challenging, requiring a lot of attention to detail. Even during winter, chocolate can be a demanding product that requires careful handling. If it is kept at room temperature, it may soften, while if it is kept too cold, it may lose its taste quality through a process called “blooming,” where its sugar rises to the surface. Think about shipping chocolates to your loved ones as Valentine’s Day approaches. At Dry Ice Corp, we have the expertise to help you send your chocolates like a pro. Please continue reading to discover how we can assist you.
Packing And Shipping Chocolate
When preparing to transport chocolates, you will need a few materials. First, find a cardboard box with enough space to store your chocolates and the insulation and coolant required. If you are shipping more delicate chocolate items such as truffles, it’s crucial to provide more room for possible rough handling during shipping.
To ensure your chocolates stay safe during transport, insulate your product by setting foam boards at the bottom and within the box’s walls. Bubble wrap can also be used for insulation to keep your sweets and coolant intact. Make sure to place the refrigerant underneath your chocolates.
Why Ship with Dry Ice?
Dry ice is an excellent option for shipping coolant as it has several benefits:
- It is lightweight, eco-friendly, highly effective, and clean.
- Dried ice takes up less space and weighs less than wet ice or gel packs, reducing shipping costs.
- Solid CO2 is a natural substance that exists worldwide and does not harm the environment. When it sublimates back into the air, it leaves no watery mess behind.
- Dry ice’s low temperature keeps bacteria in check, ensuring that your fine chocolates arrive at their destination in perfect condition.
Using the right amount of dry ice ensures that your shipment reaches its destination safely and without any damage.
