Adding extra storage capacity to your industry can be useful. When working within the catering or retail industry increased capacity allows for better stock rotation and ample storage to meet demand. For example, products such as fish, fruit & veg and meat goods can be blast frozen and used later when required.


Temperature Flexibility

Blast freezers are designed to freeze items such as food and beverages (down to -18 C) allowing you to store processed meat for up to two months and salads and desserts for up to 1 year.

The ability to control the temperature in which your products are stored means you can store a wider variety of products within the blast freezer. This flexibility allows you to store a more significant number of products at peak times within your business.

Smaller Ice Crystals

Using the blast freezing process creates much smaller ice crystals than conventional freezing. Ice crystals can ruin the taste, texture and appearance of goods, leading to a lower quality product. When blast freezing, only ‘micro’ crystals develop, therefore blast freezing is such a popular and useful tool in industries such as commercial catering.

The quality and safety of your products should be the two most important things you consider when storing your produce. If you want to ensure your company is known for their outstanding commitment to the freshest produce, then freezing and storing your food precisely is not only the smart option, it’s also critical to your on-going success.



When working in a fast-paced industry, having a blast freezer can help speed up productivity and efficiency within your company.

Having the option to store products in a blast freezer can be a quick solution to catering and distributing to large numbers of people. For example, many hotels and restaurants freeze clams, oysters and mussels and allow them to cool in the refrigerator. By using a blast freezer, you can serve the shellfish raw on the half shell, and no one will ever guess that it has been frozen.

Blast freezing also allows larger volumes of food to frozen or chilled at a much quicker rate than when using a conventional freezer, saving you time and money. As a result, this process halts the spread of bacteria more quickly, resulting in food that is both fresher and safer to eat.

Additionally, being able to blast freeze provides opportunities for transportation, while food stored safely in a frozen state. As a result, this can increase business prospects as mobility of the business can improve and allow you to cater for increased numbers.
