A freezer is an insulated room that is cooled to below freezing. This is done for the storage of products in order to prevent perishing. An example of these fresh products is for example, meat. During and before the storage of meat, processes occur that influence the look, the tenderness, freshness and the weight of the product eventually frozen.
In addition to standard freezing, in some cases blast freezing is also used. The freshly prepared products are quickly brought to a core temperature of -24°C to extend the life of the product.
A freezer can be built into a kitchen, but can also be installed as a separate, demountable freezer or as a complete freezer warehouse. Freezer warehouses are usually applied to the storage of large quantities. Because the ultimate choice for a particular freezer almost always has consequences for the quality of the products in the freezer, we recommend that you obtain advice from a specialist.
Companies that are active in the preparation, processing, treatment, packaging, transport and distribution of foodstuffs, should comply with HACCP directives. These directives, that are applicable to the entire European Union, ensure that the risk of contamination is reduced as much as possible during the production process.
