Air Liquide’s chilling, mixing and freezing solutions can enhance food-processing productivity. In the world of food processing, food safety, efficiency and product quality are primary concerns in addition to taste and texture. We provide high-quality gases, services and technologies for chilling, temperature control, freezing, crust-freezing and IQF to help improve productivity and preserving the quality of almost any type of processed food product.
Controlling the atmosphere around a food product is key to extending product shelf life and maintaining an attractive customer presentation. Our experts understand the importance of gas flush packaging, a process that replaces package headspace with a beneficial gas or mixture of gases that will dramatically slow bacterial growth and oxidative reactions.
The task of transporting foods with the cold chain intact requires precision. Refrigerated transport solutions must be customized according to travel distance, food types and to the trans-shipment period from production source to warehouse to market. Air Liquide leads the industry in refrigeration solutions for precise cooling requirements. We apply decades of experience in the food industry to define the optimal cold transport solution for any product, from gourmet ice creams to prepared meals in central kitchen.
