"With this contract we expect to handle more than 4,000 reefer containers worldwide per year for Aviko who has worldwide export. Aviko will extend their cold storage facilities by 40,000 additional pallet places. The facilities will be fully automatic and operational in 2017. Aviko is indeed a major player on the market", says Hans Poiesz, the Managing Director of Blue Water Rotterdam.

The contract was signed in January, when Blue Water was invited to visit Aviko's factory in Steenderen in Holland.

Early in the morning, an introduction was given to the history of Aviko and their plans for the future followed by a guided tour of the factory.

We also attended the loading of a container at the cold store. Furthermore, we had the opportunity to taste some of Aviko's products.
