Fish and Seafood Chilling

Maintaining cool temperatures throughout the handling process of fish and seafood – typically 0-2oC – is crucial to preserving its quality and decreasing bio-count.

Cryogenic Chilling explained…

Cryogenic Chilling (CC) uses CO2 – liquid, gas and dry ice – to chill fish and seafood to safe levels, whether in batches or continuously throughout the manufacture/ production process. Using CO2 can save space, quality and bio-count in food and seafood within your business.

Advantages of CO2 in Cryogenic Chilling:

  • More cost-effective than other methods
  • Reduced chance of oxidation
  • Better quality products – i.e. texture, freshness, smell
  • Lower risk of bacterial growth
  • Better shelf life
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Space-saving
