AGRO Merchants Lough Egish installed 2 new blast freezing chambers to accommodate increased demand for the integrated service. The capacity of both chambers is 44 pallets, which means that the company will be able to blast freeze 90 tons of product per cycle, in addition to the current capabilities.
The Lough Egish facility is AGRO’s largest warehouse in Ireland. The facility has 8 chambers and caters for chilled, frozen and ambient products. The Cold Store already runs 2 blast freezers – together with the new chambers, they will be able to freeze up to 150 tons per cycle over 4 blast freezers.
AGRO Lough Egish operates the first third party packing line in Ireland approved by the DAFM. Together with AGRO’s Lurgan and Dublin sites, the company can offer integrated transport services, using their own fleet of 250 truck units and more than 500 trailers.
