Plate Freezers

While many people were involved in creating the techniques used to freeze food, Clarence Birdseye receives the credit for the fast-freezing method that is still utilized today. Birdseye brought his brainchild to fruition in 1924. Though Americans were skeptical, the concept of purchasing frozen food caught on.

The idea behind Birdseye's vision was the plate freezer. Plate freezers are used to flat-freeze foods into brick-shaped packages, which are then sold to consumers. Many food companies rely on high-quality plate freezers like the ones found at RECCO.
