Sorbafreeze, the trusted chilled packaging experts
Trusted for over 25 years by companies around the world, Sorbafreeze manufactures and supplies specialist chilled packaging products to many sectors including seafood, dairy and meat suppliers, artisan food producers delivering to Michelin star restaurants as well as processors exporting live produce by airfreight.
Incorporated in 1990 in Aberdeen, Scotland, Sorbafreeze was set-up to primarily service the fishing industry in Aberdeen. The companies growth was fuelled by word of mouth as our reputation for customer service and ice pack performance grew within the industry.
In 2015, Sorbafreeze was purchased by the Pitreavie Group, a Scottish based supplier of specialist packaging.
In 2017 Sorbafreeze relocated to the Pitreavie Group’s headquarters in Glenrothes and invested over £750,000 in a new 20,000sq ft purpose-built production facility fully fitted out with custom manufacturing equipment. Key personnel were appointed to drive its growth.
The original product range featured a unique hype- absorbent polymer core with a thermal layer and high-performance barrier to keep products such as meat, fish and cheese cooler for longer than traditional hydrated products during the delivery process. Since then our range has expanded and new products (including insulated packaging and pre-hydrated gel packs) have come online offering unrivalled performance in the temperature sensitive packaging sector. A further five-figure sum has been invested in our products and personnel to satisfy customer demand.
Sorba Freeze’s unique approach to temperature sensitive packaging has already established an extensive client portfolio, including some major brands in the Food industry
Gordon Delaney, Sales Director at the Pitreavie Group explained,
Sorba Freeze has been highly successful for the last 25 years. However, we are only scratching the surface in terms of its true potential and we are delighted to make this significant investment to realise it. We have already been in talks with partners in America, China and Scandinavia and we are expanding our search to secure international agents who share our enthusiasm for providing a high-quality packaging solution to the chilled foods market.
