“It is critical that we maintain the ambient temperature below 5 degrees and Sorbafreeze enables us to do just that.”
Sorbafreeze is helping Puddledub, one of the biggest names in Pork, to ensure its superior quality products arrive as fresh as they left the Auchtertool depot, no matter how remote a location the customers may live in. The safe shipping of chilled butcher meats is key to their continued success in the UK marketplace.
As well as having multi-award winning products, Puddledub Pork is also the pork and bacon of choice by celebrity chefs such as Nick Nairn, which is why quality is key.
To ensure that this high level of quality is not compromised during the delivery stage, Puddledub use Sorbaftek sheets for all of their fresh meat products when required to be transported via overnight courier.
To meet the stringent guidelines which state the goods must be kept below a temperature of below 5 degrees when in transit, Puddledub package their products into Styrofoam boxes and place a layer of Sorbatek on top, which they have frozen to minus 20 degrees.
Managing Director, Tom Mitchell, the 4th generation of his family to run the farm, explained
“We are delivering our products across the UK on a next day service, however, when it comes to places such as Orkney & Shetland, it can take up to 2 days.”
He continued “It is critical that we maintain the ambient temperature below 5 degrees and Sorbafreeze enables us to do just that.”
