This past December (2014), Swindon Hospital was fortunate enough to be able to replace two walk-in chillers without losing any of its cooling capacity in the process. The replacement was the result of an upgrade from older 50kW units to new 65kW units capable of operating at -7°C. The project was completed over two weekends to avoid any losses in the catering department.
Europe's largest frozen food company is partnering with a group of others to form a coalition that will soon launch a brand-new campaign to promote better use of refrigerators and freezers in Europe. Iglo Group is the main driving force behind the iFreeze campaign that gets under way very soon. This latest campaign follows on the heels of a previous Iglo campaign known as Forever Food Together.
We like to stay abreast of all the latest developments in the refrigeration industry so that we can remain on the cutting edge.

Businesses take refrigeration for granted just as individual consumers do.
