Yak/Cow Milk Chews Storage Guide: How to Keep Them Fresh and Safe in the Warehouse

An infographic providing seven tips for storing yak chews in a warehouse, including temperature control, sunlight avoidance, and PPE use.

Yak/cow milk chews are a delightful treat for dogs, packed with flavor and nutrition. To ensure their freshness and longevity, proper storage is crucial. Just like caring for a newborn baby, handling these chews with care will make all the difference in maintaining their quality. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the essential steps to store yak chews effectively in your warehouses.

Maintain Optimal Storage Conditions: Yak/cow milk chews are best kept in an environment with temperatures between 15 to 21 degrees Celsius and humidity levels ranging from 40 to 50%. These conditions help prevent the chews from becoming too brittle or too soft. Consider storing them in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight, which can cause them to lose moisture and become less enjoyable for your customer’s pet consumption.

Choose a Clean and Dry Storage Area: Select a storage area that is clean, dry, and free from any potential contaminants. Ensure there is no moisture buildup or exposure to excessive heat or cold, as it can affect the texture and quality of the chews.

Cover or Seal the Chews: To maintain the freshness and prevent the chews from absorbing any odors or moisture, it is advisable to cover or seal them tightly during storage. Airtight containers, resealable bags, or food-grade packaging can be excellent options for this purpose.

Control Temperature and Humidity during Transportation and Repacking: During transportation or repacking, it’s essential to maintain proper temperature and humidity levels to prevent any adverse effects on the chews. Temperature fluctuations or excessive moisture can compromise their quality. Consider using insulated packaging or temperature-controlled containers if necessary.

Use Oxygen Observer or Silica Gel for Repacking: When repacking yak chews, especially for long-term storage, it’s recommended to include an oxygen observer or silica gel packet. These aids help absorb excess moisture and keep the chews dry, preserving their texture and flavor.

Keep Chews Separate from Raw Materials: To avoid cross-contamination and maintain the integrity of the chews, it’s crucial to store them separately from any raw materials. By preventing contact with other substances, you ensure that the chews remain safe and hygienic for your pet’s consumption.

Handle Chews with Care: When unpacking the yak chews, it’s advisable to use personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves. This precautionary measure helps maintain hygiene and prevents any potential contamination.


By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your yak chews remain fresh, safe, and delicious for your beloved pets. Remember, proper storage is the key to preserving their quality and maximizing your pet’s enjoyment. Treat these chews like the treasures they are, handling them with care throughout the storage process. With the right storage conditions and precautions, you can savor the satisfaction of providing your furry companion with the best possible chewing experience.
