The market for delicious ice cream in Britain is booming. According to the Harrogate Informer, ice cream companies across the country are recording their best sales in 10 years, both domestically and internationally. The same companies are looking at a very robust 2015 as well.

When talking about what we do here at Icecool Trailers, the context is often providing temporary refrigeration for food service applications. This is not without reason. The majority of our business involves food service companies, including restaurants and caterers. Yet there is more to what we do than just protecting food from spoilage. Another important part of our business is medical refrigeration that involves refrigerated trailers and walk-in cold rooms.
