Nowadays, with the help of science and technology of storage activities to the temperature and relative humidity composition of the cooling environment is controlled by using the machines in the modern facilities where the products can be kept for a long time about the deterioration and decay of the products that are minimized. The activities have carried out in the Bursa and Yalova provinces were investigated with the acceleration in parallel with the development process of the cold air storehouse both in the world and in Turkey and the problems encountered with the capacities, storage and processing technologies, stored fruit and vegetable types of the cold storage located on both sides were tried to be detected. Bursa and Yalova storages were selected on cold storage facilities with a minimum capacity of 2000 tons / year and the usable capacity of at least 3000 tons / year. Cold storages have been classified according to the storage types and technologies (Normal Atmosphere, Controlled Atmosphere, Dynamic Controlled Atmosphere, Modified Atmosphere, Freshcut and Frozen); A total of 37 cold storages were examined, 8 in Yalova and 29 in Bursa.
