Supplier breaks new ground with ‘zero cost’ refrigeration

CESA agrees with calls for more refrigeration energy labelling monitoring.

A new refrigeration supplier is vowing to revolutionise the UK market with something that no other manufacturer has yet managed: commercial refrigeration systems with zero energy costs.

Poland-based Slooflirpa Refrigeration says it can offer the same sized capacities as other standard commercial units available on the market, but they won’t cost customers a penny to run.

It hopes the fridges will prove popular with caterers desperate to keep a lid on rising utility costs.

A spokesperson for the brand said this morning: “The systems are so simple to use. You can position them anywhere you want in the kitchen because they don’t need to be plugged in. It’s the Holy Grail of energy efficiency. We are just surprised that nobody else has thought of it given the current emphasis on lowering power consumption.”

The company admitted that while its products would not preserve food for very long, nor keep them at optimum temperatures, operators simply couldn’t argue with the offer of ‘zero energy refrigeration’.

“Manufacturers are fighting hard to be the most efficient on the market, but we really are offering a no-cost solution for customers.”

The spokesperson said the company was now aiming to get sales partners on board to market its equipment in the UK, but was unwilling to talk margins.

“We’d rather have that discussion in private with interested parties. We really don’t want to make fools of anybody.”
