Holy cow! Or should we say ‘holy chicken!” Sanderson Farms has had to recall over half a million pounds of chicken because it was fouled with metal shavings. Not only that, but during the production run, the ice machine malfunctioned, causing the chicken to be shipped with less than favorable temperatures.

The reason for this is that different industries have different needs for storage. An establishment which is fairly low volume needs a bin with less capacity than its higher-volume counterparts.
When ordering a bin, you need to make sure that the ice machine you choose is compatible with it. A seal is formed between the machine and the bin to preserve the ice. The wrong combination could be costly.

These folks can look to you for excellent, reliably generated ice.
Having ice on hand for your hotel guests is one of the many things expected of you upon arrival at your hotel.
