Here ya go "
The ideal freezer temperature is 0 Fahrenheit (-18 Celsius)
for storing food. And -10 Fahrenheit (-23 Celsius)
is recommended when freezing food.
For every five degrees Fahrenheit above zero, the recommended storage time is cut in half. Food stored above 0 Fahrenheit loses more nutrients and loses quality faster than properly frozen food.
The faster food freezes the smaller the ice crystals. The smaller the ice crystals the smaller the change in texture and better quality when thawed."
Meanwhile the reefer box should be held around 34F if possible.
