German storage company Eiccholtz has inaugurated its refrigerated warehouse at the Port of Hamburg.
According to Eichholtz, the new, 30,000m3 facility maintains a constant temperature of 10-12°C and a humidity of 65%, making it ideal for the storage of almonds, hazelnuts, cashew nuts and pumpkin seeds from China, as well as poppy, sunflower and Chia seeds.
“An energy-saving refrigeration plant makes this building one of Europe’s most state-of-the-art refrigerated warehouses,” said Franziska Kraupner, CEO of Eichholtz. “We are delighted that this will enable us to make even more storage space available to our customers. Handling sensitive foodstuffs calls for extremely high-quality standards. Not only our new warehouse, but also our cutting-edge technical facilities, equip us to meet these optimally.”
The new warehouse doubles Eichholtz’s total refrigerated capacities, according to the company.
