LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will highlight its portfolio of Freshline® freezing and chilling solutions, which can help seafood processors improve production rates and capacities, improve yields, and produce quality products at lower costs, at this year's Seafood Expo North America in Boston from March 6-8.
As a leader in cryogenic technology applications, Air Products has the experience and technical know-how to help seafood processors address some of their toughest challenges. The company's Freshline food grade gases and equipment can help seafood processors cool or freeze products continuously or in batches; extend product shelf-life and increase distribution radius using modified atmosphere packaging (MAP); produce value-added products, such as battered, marinated or ready-to-cook items; and provide efficient individually quick frozen (IQF) solutions to retain shape, texture, and taste, even when product is coated in a sauce or has a high water content.
Seafood processors are invited to stop by booth 1074 to speak with an Air Products food specialist about which Freshline freezing and chilling solutions can help optimize their operations. With food laboratories in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, the company can test a customer's product on commercial-scale equipment to determine the feasibility of using cryogenic freezing or chilling for their specific process.
Air Products has Freshline solutions for every type of customer, from large manufacturers with multiple product lines to small food processors with a niche product and every operation in between. The company provides its industrial gases in a variety of delivery options to match each customer's requirements, from small- to large-volume users.
