Cold Store Rentals has helped a pet supplies company to keep its raw food products in prime condition.

Scruffles Pet Supplies, based in Tewkesbury, stocks raw and natural based products and had been using 29 individual freezers to store the products.
Working with Steve Prior, managing director of Cold Store Rentals, owners Melanie and Rob Lees were guided through the different options and decided on a walk-in freezer to replace the separate units.

The 36m2 freezer currently stores around 15 tonnes of pet food but has a much bigger capacity, if required. It uses less energy and enables the business to maintain better temperature control.

Rob said: “The new freezer allows us to keep our pet food at the perfect ambient temperature, which means that the products are maintained in a much better condition for longer. We strongly believe that feeding your pet the natural way with no additives or preservatives gives your pet the best diet possible – and to do this, you need to have the right quality, chilled and cold storage equipment in place.’’

Steve Prior said: “We have a wide range of experience in assisting raw pet food suppliers with chilled and cold storage solutions and when Rob and Melanie contacted us, we were delighted to help. The new walk-in freezer enables the team to pick items more efficiently and ultimately to provide a better quality service – with the crucial ingredient, that the produce is maintained at exactly the right temperature.”
