Magnavale boosts blast freezing capability

Chesterfield, UK: Multi-temperature logistics company Magnavale has increased its blast freezing capabilities by 100% in the last six months and can now blast freeze 4500 pallets a week.

In a LinkedIn post Magnavale said: “This not only gives our partners in food manufacturing and retail more availability and faster temperature conversion of stock but allows us to expand to meet the demands of a growing customer base.”

The company points out the environmental benefits of blast freezing. “Blast freezing, as opposed to more conventional methods, can add up to a week onto the shelf life of a product, and obviously this improves quality standards immensely and reduces the chance of waste.”

Since founding Magnavale in 2014, original shareholders Stuart Hancock and Stephen Lawrence have brought together several small, largely family-run businesses and seen the group grow to include sites in Chesterfield, Liverpool, Scunthorpe and Warrington (all now operating under the company’s flagship brand, Rick Bestwick), as well as entering into a five-year logistics partnership with DFDS.

Colin Taylor was appointed chief executive of Magnavale last year.
