Question and Answer

Q – What is the major benefit of using an ICF storage facility for produce?

A – In an ICF storage facility, product quality can be maintained at far higher levels than in traditional facilities, in addition less produce perishes during the storage period. This results in a much greater return on investment for farmers.

Q – What is the difference in cost between a conventional and ICF structure?

A – The initial construction cost is comparable, however significant cost saving are obtained due to lower operating costs and significantly lower annual maintenance costs.


Benefits of ICF Use for Storage Facilities

  • Insect and rodent resistant
  • Reduced annual operating costs
  • Dramatically improved energy efficiency
  • Significantly lower maintenance
  • Mold and mildew resistant
  • Fire resistant
  • Constant temperature control
  • Airtight construction
  • Withstand severe weather conditions

I don’t think about the past, I think about the future and about increasing profitability while supplying the best quality produce.
