Coolrite are proud to have supplied all of the refrigeration to Irelands newest SuperValu which opened on the 26th of October in Fairways, Dundalk Co. Louth. There are now 224 SuperValu stores nationwide many of which are customers of Coolrite. 40 new jobs have been created in the state-of-the-art new store in Dundalk. There will be many more at the local suppleirs who have products on sale there. The 17,600 square feet new store represents an investment of €7 million by local businessman Richard Tiernan.
The new store offers consumers a large range of fresh products sourced from local food producers including BMoran Jams, Rafferty’s Fine Foods, Morgans Seafoods and McCloskey’s Bakery. The store also offers products form the Food Academy programme, a joint initiative by SuperValu, Bord Bia and the Local Enterprise Office which helps start-up food companies to bring their product to market in SuperValu stores nationwide.
All of the refrigeration equipment which has been installed by Coolrite in this new SuperValu has been selected with energy saving as a consideration. The multideck cabinets used were the JBG RDG “Zero Defrost” model with glass doors. These highly energy efficient mutidecks use only a fraction of the energy of a traditional open multideck and deliver further savings compared with other similar brands. This further saving is delivered by the elimination of the defrost cycle.
The JBG “Zero Defrost” system was short listed at the prestigious RAC Cooling Awards 2016 in the UK & the 2017 Green Awards in Ireland.
