food storage

Food logistics is both a traditional domestic skill and is important industrially. The transport and storing of food as well as timely delivery to consumers is important in order to secure the procurement of food. Food is stored by almost every human society and by many animals. Storing of food has several main purposes:
Storage of harvested and processed plant and animal food products for distribution to consumers
Enabling a better balanced diet throughout the year
Reducing kitchen waste by preserving unused or uneaten food for later use
Preserving pantry food, such as spices or dry ingredients like rice and flour, for eventual use in cooking
Preparedness for catastrophes, emergencies and periods of food scarcity or famine
Religious reasons (Example: LDS Church leaders instruct church members to store food)
Protection from animals or theft
