Export-Approved Cold Storage Warehousing

One of our core services at Magnavale is storing ambient, chilled, and frozen food products destined for export. When food products are intended for export, they must be stored in a cold storage facility that has obtained specific certifications and approvals from relevant authorities. As an export-approved cold store, we undergo rigorous inspections and audits to ensure our facilities meet stringent standards for food safety, hygiene, and temperature control.

The specific export-approved licensing and certifications required for a cold store depend on the types of food products being handled and the intended destination countries. For instance, if storing pork destined for China, a separate license is required compared to one needed for poultry products destined for the same market – the approvals are species and destination-specific.

We are one of a small handful of cold stores in the UK that holds the necessary certifications for exporting a wide range of food products to China as well as other countries such as Australia, Thailand, Canada, and South Korea.
