We are delighted to share the news that IFPC client, I-I-Ice at the Wealmoor factory has won the 2020 RAC Cooling Award following our extensive work on the facility, based in Hayes, Middlesex.
The judges liked the project’s attention to detail in all areas, including an environmentally friendly and energy efficient cooling solution.
I-I-Ice and Wealmoor worked together to specify a CO2 system for the freezer system, pumping glycol ammonia refrigeration for the HT load. This resulted in the return temperature being raised by three degrees celsius to deliver a 10 per cent energy saving.
This installation is projected to save 2.17 million kW/h per year – which equates to over £300,000, returning the investment in less than 12 months.
We are really pleased with this result and wish Wealmoor all the best for future initiatives.
Integrated Food Projects have partnered with Kettleby Foods on a number of high-profile multi-million pound capital projects since 2003/4, helping the business to develop and grow. Throughout that time they have provided cost-effective and efficient solutions on development projects both at our existing ready meals production facility and also in creating a new satellite facility. The projects at our existing facility were managed without impact on our ability to service our own clients, and all projects have been delivered within budget, in a timely fashion and to the requisite standards of safety and quality. Their team work ethos and professional approach ensure successful projects and I would utilise Integrated Food Projects in the future without hesitation.

I have worked with Integrated Food Projects on many capital expenditure projects since 2004, the latest being the development of the new plot of land adjacent to our main site. They successfully employed a project delivery process to ensure the integration of a leased modular building solution with the development of the site infrastructure to improve logistics and Health and Safety. Their staff are always positive and enthusiastic and have fostered a team-work approach ensuring another successful project delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
