Providing cold storage, blast freezing and tempering services to the food sector.

Beyond standard temperature controlled storage Magnavale strives to provide a full range of complementary services to cut the complexity and cost of your supply chain. Additional services include blast freezing and tempering, packing, labeling, date coding and export related activities.

Magnavale Announce New Automated Date Coding Line

Magnavale can now offer its customers a fully automated date-coding solution, making the process of applying sell-by and use-by dates to products easier, faster, more hygienic and reducing the cost risk posed by variations in the price and availability of labour.

Advantages of the new system;

1: Significantly reduced handling, promoting superior hygiene and reducing the chance of human error and damage.


2: The fully automated system ensures changes in the labour market won’t affect your price.

3: Packaging options can be extremely varied as the new equipment will print effectively on almost any substrate.

4: Speed of dispatch is greatly increased as the automated coding line can process stock at a much higher rate than traditional manual handling.
