Sustainability & Quality

May 2017 Frigomundo unrolled a major sustainable energy project and installed the largest cold store solar panel system in The Netherlands!

We see a growing necessity towards CO2 neutral production chains. By making the storage part more sustainable we positively influence the environmental impact of the total production chains of our clients.

By installing a record-breaking (5.800 solar panel) energy system is being installed on 10.500m² of roof. The system has a capacity of 1,577 MWp which produces 1.388 MWh every year. In comparison: This would be enough to meet the average annual energy needs of 300 (four person) family households, significantly reducing the carbon footprint with 950 ton per year. Frigomundo uses around 2.915 MWh of energy a year, the solar panels will meet around 50% of this requirement. When the cooling systems aren’t running, the excess power will go back into the local electricity grid.

A reason to start this energy project, is that we see a growing necessity towards CO2 neutral production chains. By making the storage part more sustainable we positively influence the environmental impact of the total production chains of our clients. With our sustainable approach we are convinced we have a competitive edge compared to other cold stores and we will attract clients with the same sustainable view on the future.

Surveillance

Any goods you place in storage at our facility are in safe and reliable hands. We operate a camera surveillance system in our building, which is also equipped with burglar and fire alarm systems, several high fences, an emergency power unit, and an alarm system that is triggered by deviations in temperature in the storage areas. We are also committed to protecting your confidentiality and store all your products with the appropriate discretion.

Quality assurance

Frigomundo maintains its own quality assurance department, which checks features such as the temperatures and best-before dates of all goods as soon as they arrive at our facility. Once we have placed your goods in storage, we ensure they are kept at a perfect temperature. Since the distance from the dock to the refrigeration units is very short, we guarantee that temperatures are maintained at all times.

Our highly trained quality assurance team also records and enforces aspects such as environmental protection and labour conditions. This ensures that all quality aspects are covered and the quality of our products is continuously guaranteed for our customers.

Frigomundo is certified to operate at the highest level. In addition to holding HACCP certification, our company is certified for IFS Logistics, while we also have AEO (Authorised Economic Operator) status.

Sustainability

As a company that was established relatively recently (2008), Frigomundo operates a state-of-the-art, energy-efficient refrigeration and freezing unit which runs on ammonia and carbon dioxide. The residual heat is used to heat the floors of the freezing units. Double door systems and insulation conduits ensure that the amount of cold air to escape from the refrigeration and freezing areas is kept to a minimum. We regard sustainability as an ongoing, continuous process, and closely monitor trends in this area, implementing them wherever possible.
