Question and Answer
Q – What is the major benefit of using an ICF storage facility for produce?
A – In an ICF storage facility, product quality can be maintained at far higher levels than in traditional facilities, in addition less produce perishes during the storage period. This results in a much greater return on investment for farmers.
Q – What is the difference in cost between a conventional and ICF structure?
A – The initial construction cost is comparable, however significant cost saving are obtained due to lower operating costs and significantly lower annual maintenance costs.
