Our non-hydrated gel ice pack, offering time-proven temperature performance

Our Sorbatek range, known for its compact storage design, offers time-proven temperature performance and is trusted by companies worldwide to ship meat, seafood, ready meals, drinks and many other temperature sensitive products.

Sorbatek is made from a unique gel encased within a hi-tech reflective foil that prevents the formation of meltwater on your products. This means than not only does Sorbatek keep your products cooler for longer, they arrive in the same pristine condition as when they were packed.

Certified performance validation testing is available for high volume contracts. Get in touch for details.

Our pre-hydrated gel ice pack solution

No time to soak? Our Hydratek range of hydrated sheets and blocks offer the same great performance of Sorbatek but are freezer ready to cut out the saturation process.

The cooler for longer unique gel formula, approved by both the FDA & EU, creates an ice pack that is capable of maintaining temperatures for up to 48 hours. Hydratek is manufactured from food-safe crisp, clean, recyclable white polyester with maximum puncture and tear resist properties.

Certified performance validation testing is available for high volume contracts. Get in touch for details.

Case Studies

“We’ve been using Sorbafreeze since launching earlier this year and have never looked back.”

Sorbafreeze has helped The Juicing Co gear up for a busy post-festive rush by supplying them with Sorbatek ice sheets, insulated boxes and foil envelopes. Due to the nature of the products, these need to be kept in a chilled environment to maintain quality. By using the complete solution, The Juicing Co can rest assured that their chilled packaging will maintain temperature for up to 48 hours.


We are proud of what we do. So are our clients

Hear what they have to say:

Scottish Speciality Food Show 2018Product used: sorbatek

Carwyn Adams from Caws Cenarth points out “We aim to keep our products below 5°C. As we use non-refrigerated overnight couriers to transport our orders, we send our cheese out in purpose made insulated boxes layered with Sorbafreeze sheets to ensure the product reaches our customers in top condition. We know it works as our clients probe the products upon receipt.”

Carwyn Adams, Caws Cenarth

Dan Hendry of Scotprime commented “We’ve tried everything else, even 1 litre milk bottles filled with frozen water which equals 1kg of water but when you store water there is always the risk of typhoid or Cholera. With Sorbafreeze we know that by the time the customer gets their produce it will be at the exact temperature they require, giving them enough time to sell on to their end clients for processing. We’re dealing in huge volumes such as 400 kg of prawn orders, so we cannot afford to lose the stock and not be paid for it.”

Dan Hendry, Scotprime

The Savanna’s Managing Director, Lisa Gardshol commented “Sorbafreeze was recommended to us as the best solution for our online sales and UK wide deliveries and it has not let us down.”

Owner of the award-winning Buffalo Farm, Steve Mitchell, explains “We have previously used other packaging solutions for the products we courier across the UK, but we were never totally happy or confident that our products were going to arrive in pristine condition. With Sorbafreeze, no matter what happens in transit, we know for certain that the temperature will meet every requirement, there will be no leaks and most importantly the product will be in great condition.”

Steve Mitchell, Buffalo Farm

Stuart Williamson from Flying Fish Seafoods illustrates “We were using flaked ice to deliver our products but started receiving requests from customers saying they did not want to receive packages dripping with water. We therefore use Sorbafreeze pads to control the temperature and I am delighted at how it does exactly as we need it to do.”
