Why is refrigeration so important?

The shelf life or store life of perishable items like fresh veggies and meat products is comparatively less as compared to cooked food. Commercial refrigeration is a process by which you can extend the life of such items by ensuring that the temperature is kept at an appropriate range. Usually the range is between 1 degree centigrade and 4 degree centigrade. However if frozen meat products have to be kept for months they have to be kept at temperatures between -18 degree centigrade and -35 degree centigrade.
