Cold Chain Management

This site is for a company called FlowerWatch that sells a service for managing the environment after the peonies are harvested. Their service is not something Alaska growers could take advantage of, but the site shows the importance of managing the cold chain from the field to the vase. Temperature is especially critical, and growers in Alaska should have recordable temperature monitors in their pack houses and refrigerated storage that allows growers to have precise control of their storage conditions. Everything from harvest stage to the shipping containers should be standardized across the state to allow for a great Alaska brand for everyone.
