Expert Answer:

  • Perishable foods such as fruits, vegetables, fish and fresh meat are stored in the refrigerator.
  • Refrigeration involves low temperature which slows down the growth of microorganisms.
  • Low temperatures even retard the rate of chemical and enzymatic changes in food and prevent the food from getting spoilt.
  • As result, the food stays fresh for a longer time.
