Making a capital investment into replacing iced seafood display cases with iceless versions saves water, money, time and potential liability issues.
Iceless seafood display cases can save over 100,000 gallons of water and approximately $800 in energy and water costs per case each year. Refrigerated cold plate displays also eliminate the significant amount of energy needed to make the ice and heat water to melt it for cleaning. There are potential unforeseen benefits as well, such as reduced labor costs in melting ice regularly and creating eye-catching ice displays. They’re easy to maintain and to use.
There is an art to creating the perfect, eye-catching seafood display for your customers. Your customers are looking for the best quality, price and food safety. While some may argue that a bed of ice creates a more visually appealing display, the benefits to your bottom line, employee safety and creating a more sustainable retail operation far outweigh this subjective claim.
