Dry ice can preserve valuable food products at every stage of operation beginning with manufacturing onto transportation and distribution or storage.

Cooling Agent

When dry ice is used as a food cooling agent, the atmosphere around the food product is modified. The oxygen level concentration around the food product is reduced as the carbon dioxide concentration increases. This method helps in preventing insects as well as mould and oxidation from destroying the food.


Dry ice is used in the transportation of food to keep temperatures at safe levels. Dry ice is used in airline catering, ready meals, shipping perishables including non-frozen goods and meat, poultry and seafood products.

Food Equipment Cleaning
Food manufacturing equipment can also be cleaned using Dry ice, significantly reducing downtime, avoiding abrasive impact and above all, using a safe environmentally friendly product.
