The Nutritional Outlook website published a fascinating article on 26th December (2018) that talked about how sales of refrigerated snacks seem to be growing around the world. Though the article focused mainly on North America, we know that healthy snacking is big here in the UK as well. This got us thinking about how what we do – specifically cold room hire – can actually support healthy snacking.
Temporary refrigeration comes in all shapes and sizes. As an alternative to refrigerated van hire, we offer both trailers and walk-in chillers. We believe both offer benefits that far outweigh refrigerated vans in every respect. But that is not the point of this post. Rather, we want to help potential customers better understand how to choose between a trailer and walk-in chiller.
Stocking up on paper and dry goods is one thing, stocking up on perishables is another matter altogether. Moreover, this is an issue that's not limited just to grocery stores. A hard Brexit could substantially disrupt UK trade for weeks or months.
A few days ago, we ran across a news story detailing a Derby restaurant that had received a zero-star food hygiene inspection grade following an inspection this past summer (2018). Among the many problems at the establishment was a walk-in chiller covered in green mould. Both raw and prepared foods were being stored on mould-covered shelves standing against chiller walls also covered in mould.
