Rieber Thermoport insulated food transport boxes are used widely across the catering market by education caterers, armed forces, contract caterers, hospitals, care caterers, food manufacturers and independent caterers.
BGL Rieber has also worked with vehicle specialist AJR Power Solutions to develop a van-based hot meal delivery solution for Meals on Wheels, Tower Hamlets, London. Midi-K boxes proved so energy efficient they are able to run happily being used in an electric van.
Anita Selby, CPU and Delivered Meals Manager Tower Hamlets said: (EHO inspectors were) “Very happy with the system. We have been using Rieber insulated boxes for over 20 years and are experienced in packing and handling them.
“The electric vehicle meals are checked for temperature as they go out and at the point of delivery, where they comfortably achieve the required 75 degC.”
