Dubai, UAE; 09 August 2022 – Energy efficiency and a high degree of automation are key ingredients for success when it comes to deep-freeze logistics. The Middle East region has emerged as a prime location for growth of the frozen food market due to rising consumer demand.
Additionally, the demand for online orders is at an all-time high. To address special constraints in the cold chain management, i.e., food safety for perishable items and temperature sensitive products, and to meet the needs of today’s market consumption, companies need logistics and picking systems that combine deep-freeze capabilities and quick preparation of individual products and packages for delivery.
The consumers’ demand for a year-round supply of seasonal produce and ready-made meals, supported by high urbanization, remains the driving force behind innovation and sales in frozen food technologies. The UAE frozen foods market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.87% during the forecast period from 2022-2027.
On the other hand, skyrocketing energy prices and the pressing need for greater environmental sustainability mean reducing energy consumption in the frozen food supply chain has never been more urgent.
