"Our company is situated in Tucuman, Argentina. In 2006 we began the production of 100 ha conventional and 45 ha organic blueberries.

Due to limited supply of frozen services in our region, we planned the construction of a plant to process frozen berries. Our main product is blueberries an we plan to incorporate raspberries as well as blackberries. We have traveled to different parts of the world to see the freezing technology available.

After seeing the OctoFrost™ in operation in several places, our expectations were high when ordering a model 7/2. With the challenge of being the first company in our country to use this cutting-edge technology we were excited when the team from IQF Frost came to install the freezing tunnel. Everything ran very smoothly including the communication between our companies.

The production started and the process of in-depth knowledge of the freezing tunnel began. We discussed operating parameters to obtain the best possible freezing of our berries. When the project started I became fully convinced that we had made the right decision. Everything that was promised came true, performance, efficiency, energy savings, operational savings of wages, etc. Moreover product quality achieved is exceptional!

First impressions:

  • Ease of start-up
  • Washing is easy and efficient
  • Improved appearance of the product once frozen
  • Service implementation and after-sales staff is highly qualified
  • Products made completely individual and separated
  • Operation and programing by type of products very easy and fast
  • The freezer is compact and is silent during operation

All of the above summarizes that we are extremely pleased to have invested in this technology. Furthermore our customers are happy to buy a high quality product. "
