Our Fresh Approach To Brexit

With news that the government is considering stocking up on processed foods ‘just in case’ we crash out, we’re ready with over 200 cold rooms and dry stores available to hire with minimal notice to help you keep foods fresh and stored in the appropriate environment.

 

In the UK we only produce about half of what we eat and around 40% of our fresh produce comes from the EU. Key facts we may never have realised before now. Stockpiling may be the only sensible thing left to do!

The food industry including our contract caterers, event caterers and our favourite retailers are highly dependent on high quality European produce so don’t let your consumers be without their favourite spices, fresh fruit and veg, olive oils and more, the list is endless along with key medical supplies. It’s not just our retailers and favourite foodie establishments, it’s our pharmaceuticals too. Anything that puts a barrier in the flow of the distribution, could potentially increase costs and reduce the freshness of our much loved fresh produce. The vast amount of produce we bring into the UK requires temperature controlled storage.

With the impact of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit looming, why not be prepared with a contingency plan with a simple storage solution such as a temporary cold room or dry store, available for short term and long term hires. We have a 24 hour emergency call out team available and have multiple depots to service the UK’s requirements often within a matter of hours. Our largest cold rooms and dry stores can hold up to 30 pallets.

Arena Acquires Ice House Rentals Ltd

The largest UK event supplier, Arena, expands its product portfolio with the acquisition of specialist cold room business, Ice House Rentals Ltd.

Event supplier, Arena, has bought long-established providers of temporary cold rooms, Ice House Rentals Ltd. This latest acquisition will see the cold room specialist company be integrated into Arena’s current furniture and tableware business, Well Dressed Tables.

Arena UK & Europe CEO, Grahame Muir, states:

“Much like our recent acquisition of furniture specialist hire company, GLD, the acquisition of Ice House Rentals Ltd is set to significantly strengthen our offering to existing clients as well as attracting new clients to Arena’s services. Ice House Rentals Ltd has in excess of 215 cold rooms and like Arena has supplied some of the most prestigious events, such as their work in supplying over 90 cold rooms to Royal Ascot. As a leader in the events market, we hope this acquisition will further solidify Arena’s position as the business that can provide the highest quality turnkey service to those who choose to use us.”

Christopher Piggott, Managing Director of Well Dressed Tables, explains:

“This is a fantastic acquisition for the division. The ethos of quality, service and reliability, which is driven by the directors of Ice House Rentals Ltd, complements the values and standards of Arena. For Well Dressed Tables, as a division, this develops the portfolio of products that we can now offer our clients, making us truly a ‘one stop’ supplier.”

Ice House Rentals Ltd will continue to be based at its Hook facility, in Hampshire.

Tom Scott, Ice House Rentals Ltd Managing Director states:

“Joining Arena provides us with a real sense of pride.  To become part of a public company is a validation of the work we have done, providing security of supply for our clients well into the next decade. We look forward to growing our business within the Arena umbrella.”

Ice House Rentals is a division of Arena Group
