Temperature Control for Regional Transport

Open access


The introduction of this article outlines the terms and conditions of food control in the Slovak Republic and the institutions that provide it. This section also provides the comparison of inspection results in selected periods. The second part of the paper describes the measurement of the regional transport of perishable food products. The measurement compares all permitted temperature tolerances and is subsequently evaluated. The results of the measurements are also compared with the analysis of the number of checks carried out.
