The company was established in 1999 in Malmö, Sweden, where the headquarters remain. In 2015, the company name changed from IQF Frost AB to OctoFrost AB, IQF Frost Inc. to OctoFrost Inc., and ProFrost AB to OctoFrost Technology AB. All companies are part of the umbrella company—OctoFrost Group with the existing owner structure.
In 2017, OctoFrost Group took over 100% of the shares of the Dutch Innotec Systems BV, a well-known manufacturer of customized industrial food processing machinery and industrial food processing lines. Innotec had strong expertise in thermal processes like blanching, cooking, and chilling. This acquisition made OctoFrost Group a key player in the industry.
We are committed to a world with better food quality and reduced food waste by improving solutions for freshly frozen food.
Our mission is to reach out to all food producers worldwide, listen to their needs, develop and manufacture IQF processing solutions with a focus on product appearance, food safety, high yield and energy efficiency.
The company OctoFrost was founded based on a customer need with a technology that distinguishes us from existing solutions. The innovation continues with us through our continuous improvements on real customer problems. We act on the global market and are competing with organizations from all over the world, which makes us drive to further improvements.
The three main bullets below have been the guiding light in how we work and strive to succeed.
The three main values that have been the guiding light in how we at OctoFrost work and strive to succeed include:
Our customers’ real needs shall guide us in how we act in our development. The aim is to give our customers more than what they expect (soft values). We have a living contact with all our customers for direct feedback on the performance of our IQF technology.
We shall revolutionize the IQF industry by a better understanding of aerodynamics and freezing results and use it as an advantage for OctoFrost. New business concepts shall be developed, tested and evaluated. Our IQF freezers shall perform better through continuous improvements. Through our focus and knowledge, we strive for being the most respected player in the IQF industry.
Our internal processes shall be effective and measurable, free of unnecessary and non-value adding activities. We are cost-conscious in how we act. Our starting point in the design of OctoFrost’s IQF freezing tunnel is standard solutions, but with innovative design and functions when there is a clear customer value. We learn from industry and adjust to the changing environment that our customers are facing.
