Food preservation is one of the most crucial matters of restaurants, hotels and catering companies.

The quality of cooked dishes essentially depends from the preservation quality of foodstuff.

The PRS Technology is a sustainable and excellent solution for the preservation of fresh foodstuff: PRS Thermopallets and Thermoboxes are operated as fridges.

PRS’s patented Thermopallets and Thermoboxes maintain the internal optimal preservation conditions without any forced air ventilation with certified weight loss reduction, which exceeds 50%, compared to conventional fridges and cold stores as confirmed by the results obtained in several tests performed by certified institutes.

Food Waste

Thanks to PRS, Restaurants and catering service companies benefit from a significant reduction in food waste.

While fruits and vegetables stored in conventional fridges and cold stores dehydrated and lose weight, fresh food stored in PRS Thermopallets and Thermoboxes maintains natural conditions for several days. Fresh food keeps a fresh look, can be cooked and served even after over 1-week storage in PRS Equipment.
