GAC Dubai Contract Logistics is using HVAC (Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning) technology to respond to its customers’ needs for specialist storage to prevent tainting between foodstuffs.

Its new 1,700 pallet specialist facility in Jebel Ali is dedicated to goods that emit a strong scent which can affect other foodstuffs.

To avoid tainting, the room in which they are stored is sealed air tight and maintained under negative pressure.

The facility made its debut to provide storage for chewing gum and candy with a strong peppermint flavour for a long-standing client.

“After significant development in our food storage infrastructure in 2015 and ISO 22000 accreditation in 2017, our investment in this specialist solution to meet our clients’ needs further underpins our continuing commitment to high quality food handling operations,” said distribution centre manager, Richard Potts.

GAC Dubai Contract Logistics currently operates 40,000 pallet storage locations for food and beverage operations in the Jebel Ali Free Zone and at Dubai Industrial Park, plus a further 130,000 pallet storage locations dedicated to pharmaceutical, retail and fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) customers.

The company has recently been named the FMCG Supply Chain of the Year in the Logistics Middle East Awards, for the second consecutive year.
