Choosing the Best Refrigeration for Your Supermarket

Posted by Jono

As the owner of a supermarket, you’re going to be dealing with a wide variety of foods and beverages that need to be stored, chilled and presented to customers in different ways. For this, you will need a variety of fridges to suit each purpose.


How to Make the Best Supermarket Fridge Choice

In this blog, Just Fridge takes you through the various options available to you for your various products.


Meat is generally presented in an open display case – such as our wall chiller, or upright remote cabinet – that keeps it cold without freezing. Customers have free access to these doorless cases, which are kept at around 4°C.

Frozen Foods

Frozen foods were, for a long time, stored in horizontal display freezers with sliding, top-opening doors. These are still widely used for frozen meat products, vegetables and ready-made meals. However, upright alternatives are also very much in vogue. The two options offer the same capabilities. Your choice is a question of space and aesthetics.

Deli foods

For luncheon meats, cheeses and other deli items, you should best make use of open, serve-over fridges and freezers. These keep foods at the right temperature while allowing easy access for staff and clear product visibility for customers.


For dairy, you would make use of an upright cabinet with plenty of room for a lot of stock, as well as wriggle room to allow your staff to shift product since these items have short sell-by dates.
