Reliability and convenience key for Well Pharmacy

  • May 8, 2019 /

When additional temperature controlled storage was needed for their pharmaceutical distribution centre, Well Pharmacy, part of Bestway Group, decided to investigate rental options to find a reliable and easily monitored solution.

Gary Tunnicliffe, Senior Operation, Support and Development Manager, explains, “The product we hold you’d find in a pharmacy. The temperature control of the products through the entire handling line is extremely important. We have a unit from Blue Cube on-site which is very reliable, and we can check the range of temperature at any time in order for us to keep complete control and monitoring.

“The unit is linked to one of our loading bays, adding convenient additional floor space to our existing storage site. It’s very convenient for us to use as it’s located just beside our main fridge unit.

“The unit we have is a backup for our larger fridge which is on site, and also provides us with additional storage in peak times. It provides us with peace of mind and continuity, knowing that we have a reliable additional cold storage on site.

“Blue Cube have been flexible in order to fit in with our business needs. The service we have received from them has been excellent, with engineers on site within the same day, getting the unit back running straight away.”

What a Blast!

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the nutritional and quality benefits of freshly frozen food products with a growing trend for healthier ready cooked meals. In fact, according to a report published last year by The British Frozen Food Federation (Frozen Food Report II), the UK frozen food market is worth a massive £8.13billion, and is set to continue expanding.

Due to natural bacteria growth occurring during the cooling process, all foods, once cooked, will start to deteriorate. Food spoilage is typically caused by microorganisms, chemicals and enzymes. To maintain food quality it is important to take control of humidity, time and temperature.

Freezing is the easiest, most convenient, and least time-consuming method of preserving foods. Super-fast freezing will help ensure that bacteria have minimal time to develop. Almost any food item can be frozen and by using the correct method, taste and appearance are maintained while nutritional goodness is preserved.

Portable Blast Freezers are ideal where a large amount of product needs to be frozen over a certain period of time or current storage capacity has been reached and you want to avoid the hassle or expense of outsourcing,

Portable Blast Freezers help to enhance business productivity by rapidly chilling or freezing fresh food products ready for safe transportation or storage. Available in all shapes, sizes and specifications, Blast Freezers are cost efficient and ensure ultimate control over quality and consistency.

Modern Blast Freezers can also be remotely controlled via an internet connection, enabling the user to monitor the unit’s performance and track temperature movements.

Options include sending automated alarms as a warning of potential issues both to the Blast Freezer supplier and the end user, as well as the customer in some cases. The unit will record all temperature parameter data automatically. All of this information can be displayed on a summary page of live data via an internet browser which list’s the unit’s current mode, temperatures and basic operating parameters.
