Cool Chain Facilities

SB utilizes an MPI approved and purpose built 840sqm facility consisting of two chiller rooms, allowing for dual temperature between -8°C to 25°C. Additionally a force draft facility allows product to reduce in temperature quickly and efficiently.

A frozen transitional freezer is also available that can operate at -20°C and is fully MPI approved for export.

The large ELA enables temperature controlled conditions for handling product in and out of the facility, ensuring temperature conditions remain a key focus during the loading of your export product.
