Freezing and chilling equipment manufacturer Starfrost has hit a ground-breaking milestone, celebrating its 500th order. The latest contract which marked the record order intake will be supplied to a major UK bakery. The company has invested in a bespoke double drum spiral system designed to process over 1700kg per hour of bread loaves. The fully automated in-line freezer will enable the processor to increase capacity to meet the growing demand of its customers. The 500th landmark compliments Starfrost’s continuing success throughout the year, with an achievement of 20 worldwide orders so far for 2014. One contract included a 3 system order of a Spiral Freezer, Hybrid Tunnel & Contact Freezer, which was supplied and delivered to a large seafood processor based in Devon, UK. “We are delighted to be celebrating this milestone for Starfrost and the freezing and chilling industry, accomplishing a figure of 500 contract orders is a remarkable achievement, especially when you consider that each piece of freezing and chilling equipment is a customised solution designed & tailored to each food processors requirements,” says Robert Long, Sales Director. “Starfrost’s innovative equipment meets the growing demand for premium frozen food products while maintaining cost-efficient & low energy operations for the food manufacturer.” The order achievement coincides with Starfrost’s recent relocation to a new premises in Oulton Broad, Suffolk, the purpose built facility offers a fully equipped test centre and larger manufacturing and office space.
