First “green” cold storage site in Philippines

The facility, Lagman said, will help cut carbon emissions. “This is a big investment that the company decided to pour to provide the best services to our clientele — big firms from all over Luzon — using the latest in cold storage technology and at the same time, giving protection to the environment,” Lagman said.

He said the facility, the latest addition to 15 newly built, fully equipped rentable cold storage rooms with cooling temperatures of up to minus 28 degrees Celsius, makes the plant the biggest in North Luzon, with a refrigerated area of about 6,600 square metres.

“This latest cold storage is hoped to provide more cold storage for our clients and offer options for more companies seeking facilities that are kind to environment even as they provide the best possible services to keep their products fresh and safe.

The facility would also of big help to our farmers and other agricultural entrepreneurs who need post-harvest facilities,” Lagman said.
