OctoFrost’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment is built on our vision for the future, strategies, and ambitions to meet the expectations of our stakeholders which include our customers, employees, investors, suppliers, community, and the environment.
Commitment to Diversity
At OctoFrost Group we have a deep commitment to diversity. In fact, majority of our staff come from many different places around the globe. We promote diversity by recruiting employees from diverse backgrounds and we don’t discriminate based on race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, or age.
We believe that differing viewpoints is vital for company and team growth. We appreciate the perspectives of people from different backgrounds and cultures as when we work together, we receive richer ideas. Having an environment like this helps our team to become accustomed to hearing and sharing their different perspectives and presenting their ideas. We encourage our culturally diverse team to constantly brainstorm as this brings a wide variety of solutions to the table based upon different experiences and training. With more ideas to choose from, the chances of finding the best possible final solution is improved.
In an increasingly globalized world economy, it’s important to recognize that a culturally diverse team is beneficial in more ways than one. With OctoFrost operating in multiple countries and assisting customers on a few different continents, it’s very important to be able to communicate effectively in those different parts of the world. We see that as a key benefit as well as knowing how to create relationships and understand the cultural nuances and differences in doing business in foreign countries.
OctoFrost™ food processing equipment is more than just a safe buy, through interaction with traders around the world, we are helping our customers get new orders for their top quality OctoFrost™ IQF frozen products. Our skilled and passionate staff strives to be at the forefront of the food processing equipment industry, making sure our clients’ needs are met.
How We Measure Efficiency
Our internal processes shall be effective and measurable as well as free of unnecessary non-value adding activities. We are cost conscious in how we act. Our starting point in the design of all OctoFrost™ IQF processing equipment is with standard solutions coupled with innovative and efficient functional design. We continually learn from industry best practices and adjust to the changing environment that processors are facing.
Sustainable Product Development
OctoFrost’s aim is to contribute to the decrease of global food waste by making the most of the raw materials used in the freezing process. When it comes to energy efficiency, the OctoFrost™ IQF food processing line offers some of the greatest benefits. The OctoFrost™ IQF technology ensures lower energy consumption and waste for full IQF processing. This is due to the design and innovative technologies of our IQF food processing equipment: IF Cooker, IF Blancher, IF Chiller, and IQF tunnel freezer. There is energy efficient steam injected into the blanching and cooking water as well as significantly faster heat transfer thanks to the unique impingement rain shower system.
Furthermore, the OctoFrost™ processing line also uses recirculated water. The tunnel freezer features patented bedplates instead of a conveyor belt and has a compact octagonal body that provides efficient aerodynamics throughout. A compact body and less turbulence require less fan speed and power consumption. Additionally, the OctoFrost™ processing line has decreased energy consumption by up to 30% thanks to the high-performing fans and free-standing feet that require no need for floor heating.
