Dear all,

good evening.

It is one upon density of the product.

Each Product? This to do with warehouse storage or?

Not even Ice is consistent enough in terms of how it packs to extend its nominal density to how it occupies space in a cold storage warehouse. The gross density of food stuffs can be found at a number of sources One Below can be found on Web as PDF: http://www.fao.org/publications/card/en/c/989d8ab1-0e5b-55fe-92e0-1fa03e573deb/
