Fruit & Vegetable Industry

Fruit Storage

Many factors influence how your fresh fruits and vegetables are stored, the main one being temperature. A high-quality storage solution can slow down the deterioration process, allowing you to store your goods for longer due to correct temperature ranges.

During busy harvesting seasons, many businesses tend to struggle with efficiency due to labour shortages, little to no sustainability practices, poor harvest and/or waste. All these challenges and more can be overwhelming as the operations are seasonal.

Planning and preparation are keys to achieving the best goals in accelerating the processes. So, investing in high-quality cold storage will allow you to maintain correct temperatures and store your produce for longer periods.

Produce Cold Storage Solutions

CRS offers a diverse range of cold storage solutions to the seasonal fruit and vegetable industry. Our commercial refrigeration solutions are available in various sizes and options, including fully bespoke cold storage tailored to your business’s unique requirements to ensure it meets your repository needs. 

Blast Freezers for Fruits and Vegetables

We have a range of Blast Freezers suitable for the fast, effective freezing and storage of fruits and vegetables. Blast Freezing helps secure the freshness and nutrition of your products, making them accessible to your business as and when required helping to reduce waste. The cold rooms are ideal for hygienic food processing areas and fresh produce storage.

Proper preservation post-harvest can:

  • Reduce respiratory activity and degradation by enzymes.
  • Reduce internal water loss and wilting.
  • Slow or inhibit the growth of decay-producing microorganisms.
  • Reduce the production of the natural ripening agent, ethylene.

Storing produce at a high standard enables you to meet your customer demand throughout the year as these solutions rapidly freeze produce without damage, keeping it as fresh and delicious as the day it was harvested.

New and refurbished equipment is available to rent for six months or more. Call us on 0800 085 2298 for a free, no-obligation quote.

On finding new premises after a fire we found we couldn’t add the cold storage facilities we previously enjoyed! CRS came on the scene and had the solutions to give us the manoeuvrability and flexibility we required in one unit and at a very reasonable price. Very very happy with the service and reliability CRS provide!
