How Cold Storage Helps Reduce Food Waste

At Magnavale, we strive to offer the most efficient cold storage solutions, in terms of both technology and intuitive operations that allow our customers to cut costs, reduce risk and complexity within their supply chain.

We have an invested interest in sustainability and as a provider of temperature-controlled storage, we recognise the importance of preserving the shelf life of perishable food products, as it directly contributes to the reduction of food waste.

Sustainable Cold Storage

Using Cold Storage to Extend Shelf Life

The goal of temperature-controlled storage is to preserve shelf-life of perishable food products, allowing food manufacturers to align their production volumes with consumer demand. The extended shelf life provides numerous benefits to both food manufacturers, most importantly it provides more flexibility within the cold chain for distribution and consequently can minimise waste.

By extending the shelf life of perishable goods, cold stores support the availability of high-quality produce for consumers. It enables access to a wider variety of seasonal produce throughout the year, regardless of geographical constraints.

Value Added Cold Chain Services

Alongside our cold storage solutions, we offer an extensive selection of value-added cold chain services across our temperature-controlled facilities. Designed with the specific needs of food manufacturers and retailers in mind, our value added services aim to drive efficiencies for our partners supply chain, reducing unnecessary steps.

Our value-added services, such as blast freezing, up-tempering and contract packing, are specifically designed to enhance supply chain efficiency and reduce transportation-related challenges. Our blast freezing service enables rapid freezing of products, preserving their quality, texture, and nutritional value.

Blast freezing plays a significant role in reducing food waste for several reasons. Blast freezing rapidly lowers the temperature of food produce, which reduces the growth of bacteria and slows down enzyme activity that can lead to spoilage. By effectively preserving the quality and freshness of the food, blast freezing can extend shelf life considerably.
