Environmental Responsibility When the Temperatures Rise
Keeping large warehouses cool during the summer takes energy - but it can be done responsibly too.  Learn more about Americold's corporate social responsibility programs that ensure we do our part for our planet.

Bar-b-ques, burgers, hotdogs and ice cream – it’s what we all live for, and it’s what our food production and commercial kitchen customers build up for almost since the last summer heatwave ended!

Demand would quickly outpace production of our backyard favorites under normal circumstances so it’s fortunately that America’s temperature-controlled storage and distribution supply chain is as robust as it’s ever been. 

There are more than 1000 commercial temperature-controlled warehouses across the US. Most are strategically placed close to production and consumption centers and some are customer-dedicated and even attached to production facilities. Americold has a number of customer-attached facilities including some for ice cream. Yum.
