In today’s hospitality, catering and foodservice industries, serving top quality produce is essential. As such, proper refrigeration of goods is a vital part of a successful business. Purchasing food products (or any type of product) in bulk is a great way to save money, but only if you have the facilities to store those goods until it’s time to sell. In addition, the fast pace of food preparation means that food must be accessible when needed. Most importantly, your goods need to be kept cool – maintaining food safety, freshness and flavour. A walk-in cooler or freezer gives you safe cold storage and accessibility, making it the ideal solution.

Walk-in coolers and freezers can be easily be adapted for most applications. Whether they are used indoors, outdoors, in basements, or as part of a retail store, they’re ideal for kitchens, cafés and restaurants, as well as bars, clubs, resorts and on-site functions or events – keeping beverages, frozen goods and produce cool and fresh.

There are countless benefits of installing a walk-in cold storage unit for your business, including;

Flexible size and storage space
One of the main benefits of having a walk-in fridge or freezer is the size. You can select from a number of different size options for your cold-storage unit, all with ample storage space for your goods and produce. This means you spend less time on restocking and save money by purchasing in bulk, knowing you have plenty of storage space available.

Modern refrigeration systems
With today’s modern insulation and technology, walk-in fridges and freezers provide reliable airtight seals and temperature regulation controls. Most can be customised to suit your specific needs – ensuring your goods and produce are kept fresh in a controlled environment at all times.

Improved accessibility and organisation
With a walk-in fridge or freezer, it’s easy to find and access the goods and produce you need. This is ideal for kitchens, cafés and restaurants where food products need to be found and selected quickly as required. Installing shelving units makes even better use of your space, improving kitchen organisation and saving you time.

Enhanced safety features
Heavy duty hinges, inside door releases and deadbolt locking handles are further features which make walk-in cold storage a great choice for cafés, restaurants and kitchens. That way, any valuable or expensive stock – including alcoholic beverages – can be kept safe from theft. And if one of your staff should find themselves accidentally locked in to the unit, they can release the door from the inside.
