I recommend the retail groups mentioned above to initiate this policy as soon as possible. It is recommended to fit doors to all open fridges in their stores or replace them with ones that do. The reasons are stated below:
1. Stop wasting electricity and reduce carbon emissions
There are about 18,0000 open fridges in Hong Kong grocery retailer brands. If all fridges have doors, it is projected to reduce emissions of 51,000 metric tons of carbon annually. This is equivalent to the amount of carbon dioxide for over 200 million trees to absorb a year. Fitting doors to open fridges greatly reduces electricity consumption and carbon emissions. It helps to save production costs as well.
2. Ensuring food safety gives consumers a peace of mind when buying a product
Ensure refrigerated food or drink is placed in a sufficiently low and stable range of temperature in the fridges. This reduces the chance of bacterial growth, ensuring food safety.
