Learn how to choose the best refrigeration service for your business and maximise your efficiency and profits
The Right Refrigeration Service For Your
Correct food hygiene and storage are of paramount importance, especially when you're choosing the perfect refrigeration services for your commercial catering business. From cold storage rooms to sustainable solutions, let's analyse the options.
The Right Refrigeration Service for Your Business
Choosing the right refrigeration service is rarely as important as it is when you’re working in the catering industry. With delivering high-quality food at the centre of your business, it’s important to have high-quality food storage solutions to match, in order to prevent spoilage, waste and maintain excellent hygiene and health and safety at all times.
Navigating the saturated refrigeration services market can be difficult, as there are seemingly endless chilling, freezing and cooling solutions available to keep your commercial catering business running smoothly and safely. We’re here to help you break down the benefits and help you to differentiate between the variety of options available, so you can choose the refrigeration service that’s right for you.
Commercial Refrigeration Service: Where Do I Begin?
Fundamentally, your chosen refrigeration service depends on the nature of your commercial catering business as a whole. Features such as commercial ice machines, blast chillers, keg coolers, back bar coolers and bottle fridges all provide different elements of accessibility and versatility and ultimately depend on whether you need your refrigeration service to be seen and used by the public or just yourself and your team.
Refrigerated displays, for example, are a great way to showcase your products to potential customers, or, alternatively, sit under the counter for easy access. Display freezers offer a similar effect at sub-zero temperatures and both can be designed as bespoke solutions to fit your commercial catering needs.
Cold Storage Rooms: A Hygienic Solution
Cold storage rooms are one of the top choices for food storage in the commercial catering industry, due to their exceptional hygiene properties, customisable nature and scope for cost savings.
You don’t need us to tell you that disposing of a lot of food can be detrimental to your business’s profit margins. A lot of this food waste is caused by incorrect storage. Luckily, cold storage rooms drastically reduce food spoilage by keeping easily contaminated food, such as fruit and vegetables, at optimum temperature and controlling levels of moisture to extend the life of your produce. Don’t worry, this doesn’t just apply to fruit and veg - cold storage rooms can extend the life of all kinds of ingredients, from flour all the way to canned goods! This means that the cold storage unit can be used both inside and outside a building. The airtight construction will keep the temperature inside the unit regulated for a long period of time, thereby helping keep your food safe for longer in the case of a power outage.
Of course, it’s not just about what happens inside the unit - cold storage rooms are built with resilient airtight properties, to prevent food damage as a result of changes in external temperatures and weather changes. This means that the cold storage unit can be used both inside and outside of a building and also helps keep your food safe for longer in the case of a power outage, as the airtight construction will keep the temperature inside the unit regulated for a long period of time.
Co2 Refrigeration Services: The Sustainable Solution
With the recent, staged phase-out of HFC gas, as well as the halt on manufacture of virgin R404A in January 2020, refrigeration systems operating on CO2 have become more attractive than less sustainable alternatives. This assists clients in reducing their carbon footprint and improving carbon offset and energy efficiency.
Co2 is an excellent refrigeration service solution for a variety of reasons, the most obvious being the positive environmental impacts, as using Co2 instead of conventional refrigerants allows your business to largely reduce its carbon footprint due to the non-toxic nature of the gas.
If you’re looking to maximise your profits, Co2 refrigerants could be the right service for you as they’re usually less costly and more efficient than their HFC counterparts. For example, Co2 is much cheaper to purchase from the outset, saving you money upfront. There is also no predicted change in legislation pertaining to the use of Co2, meaning that this refrigeration service will likely be here for the long haul. This makes Co2 a future-proof investment; it’s unlikely that you’ll have to spend money down the line on investing in a new gas as a result of legal legislative changes.
