Social distancing continues to be encouraged, forcing many people to remain away from their loved ones to ensure their safety and health. Maybe you’ve been wanting to share some food with your family but the only way to safely do so would be to send it to them. Thankfully, there are ways to ship perishables with a little creativity.
When choosing your packing materials, you’ll want to use things like wooden boxes, corrugated cardboard, or plastic to maintain insulation. A styrofoam liner is also a good idea to add even more insulation and protection.
To ensure that the food retains cold as much as possible, wrap it in paper or plastic bags prior to packing. Pack the dry ice and the food safely yet closely together. You may wish to use something like a newspaper to take care of gaps and add further insulation.
In regards to dry ice, keep in mind that it will last for about three days before it turns into a gas (sublimation) as it will not melt. Hence, you’ll likely want to adjust your shipping speed accordingly.
