The food industry has always battled against two difficulties which have the potential to spoil finely produced products before they reach the end user.

1) Temperature control outside the chiller cabinet and

2) Excess fluids causing poor appearance or actual product deterioration

Sorba-freeze is a brilliant product which addresses both of these problems. For hundreds of years low temperature control has been achieved by ice, but ice has drawbacks

a) ice melts, and when it does the resultant water becomes much harder to manage, causing mess and corrosion.

b) when ice melts, at 0C, its temperature control is lost and the temperature climbs quickly.

c) ice needs to be contained - in a box, in a bag - or it gravitates downwards and outwards spreading the mess and uncovering the product.

d) Sorba-freeze have even incorporated a special carbon impregnated powder which helps to eliminate bacteria in fluids secreted in the transport of live shellfish.

Sorba-freeze as a refrigerant overcomes all of these.

Sorba-freeze is immersed for 10-15 minutes in fresh water which it absorbs and retains and is frozen.

It is then placed over or around your product which, ideally, should be close to 0C. When packed in an insulated container the temperature will then remain at below 5C for in excess of 30 hours even when sent by post!

And there is no flood. Sorba-freeze retains its water - it does not squeeze out.

Perhaps best of all, compared to ice or traditional gel packs Sorba-freeze protects your products better because it can be wrapped right round - even placed inside - and it stays there until it is unwrapped at the other end. It takes up less space and works better...

Sorba-freeze brings a new dimension to the transport of fresh products.
