In a fast-moving food production environment like a bakery, refrigerated containers provide a cost-effective and trusted storage solution.

Ingredients and their finished products can be stored in a range of desired temperatures – all monitored in real time, so staff are alerted of any unexpected changes.

Seven Refrigeration is the ideal partner for bakeries looking to add additional cold storage, either on a permanent basis or at busy times of the year, such as the lead-up to the festive period.

Our 20-foot or 40-foot refrigerated containers can be stored outside, freeing up more space indoors for production. Or, if space is not an issue and, subject to a site survey, our containers can be moved inside (using skates).

Inside or out, our simple-to-operate solution allows staff to easily access the ingredients or stock they need, individually or by pallets.

Here are some of the things being said within the bakery sector:

“Our industry thrives in the festive periods, and a refrigerated container is an ideal contingency when faced with extra demand as well as assisting the everyday operation.”

“The cold store enhances floor space, provides a cost-friendly option to ensure the production area can be used by our bakers to its full potential without bulky in-house chillers and freezers getting in the way.”

“Cold stores provide a great solution for our business and ultimately maximises floor space, enhances storage capacity and boosts overall productivity.”

For pharmaceutical companies, reliable cold storage is essential. Anything from drugs, vaccines, blood samples and chemicals need to be stored at critical temperatures to maintain quality.

In such a key industry, maintaining consistency and supply is vital – while temperature failures are bad news for any business, in pharmaceuticals in can have a serious impact on healthcare environments.

Refrigerated containers from Seven Refrigeration provide not only peace of mind, with our real-time temperature monitoring and alarm systems, but also flexibility. Our containers are stored outside, freeing up internal space, and additional units can be added at short notice during busy periods.

Each container, either 20-foot or 40-foot, is flexible, allowing for storage of pallets or individual items, drums or trollies.

Using our temperature monitoring system, staff can access temperature data in real time from their web browser or mobile phone app.

Here’s what’s being said in the pharmaceutical industry:

“A lot of products within our industry are temperature critical, and all of the cold stores come with a temperature monitoring system and will send out of range alerts to designated mobile numbers or email addresses. This ensures the ultimate quality and performance monitoring to guarantee the quality of our product.”

“We supply laboratories, hospitals and healthcare businesses. The refrigerated container allows a solution for extra storage, especially at different temperatures, across the UK and this will only benefit further as we constantly grow and our capacity for extra product storage can grow with us.”
