OctoFrost Group is a Swedish globally known manufacturer of individual quick freezing (IQF) tunnel freezers. The company is praised for its innovative technologies in freezing sector and unique features of their equipment.
With IQF freezers installed in more than 50 countries, OctoFrost Group is taking the next step in growing its business and product portfolio by purchasing 100% of the shares of the Dutch Innotec Systems BV. Innotec Systems is also a well-known equipment manufacturer in food industry, supplying a range of food processing machineries and food processing lines with largest focus on thermal processes like blanching, cooking and chilling.
This deal means that OctoFrost Group is becoming a supplier of complete IQF Processing lines, making the company a key player in food processing industry.
“Taking over Innotec was our natural response to the needs of the market. This brings a number of advantages for food processors and the most significant one is that from now on there will be no further discussions whom has all the responsibility for the good operation of the complete line. It is us!” the founder of OctoFrost Group, Ruben Larsson, explained.
The CEO of the company, Rasmus Larsson, sees a great benefit in this acquisition as it will deepen and broaden the expertise of OctoFrost in food processing lines and thermal treatment.
“We can now optimize the entire line for the best final result, highest yield, lowest energy consumption bringing the highest value to our customers. Our After Sales activities also benefit from the scale up in the organization and we can be closer to our customers”.
The two companies, OctoFrost Group and Innotec Systems, have been cooperating for a long time on different projects around the world, uniting their forces into supplying the best complete processing solutions to their customers. From now on, the company will increase its core focus in thermal treatment of food products. Thermal treatment, be it freezing, blanching or cooking – is a very complex process which cannot be replaced by cheap manpower. Truly sophisticated technology is required to achieve the best results. The OctoFrost Group of today, with its new structure, will continue to develop and supply high quality equipment which can obtain a final product with an appetizing appearance, natural bite, and natural smell and taste.
