Optimize Food Safety

Today, roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption gets lost or wasted. About one fourth of the food loss takes place in the retail sector. Danfoss solutions not only ensure the perfect conditions for food in temperature controlled environments, they also help achieve near-zero downtime on store applications in order to improve food safety and reduce food loss. The Smart Store solution from Danfoss predicts failure and triggers just-in-time maintenance.

Combat climate change

At least 50 million tons of equivalent CO2 leaked into the atmosphere could be avoided every year, if grocery stores across the world switched from synthetic to natural refrigerants such as CO2. A lot of forward-thinking retailers have already made the move to natural refrigerants. Are you the next? Danfoss Smart Store will help you boost the energy efficiency of your stores and the green image of your brand.

Think ahead with big data

The use of big data opens a new world of opportunities. Many retailers are already embracing the opportunities of big data to improve revenue streams, control costs and drive change in business and delivery models. But when it comes to big data, we have only just seen the beginning. Danfoss Smart Store has been developed to make the most of big data in food retail. This means that you can focus all your energy on retailing while we ensure that your store is optimized at all times.


Maximize energy efficiency

As the global population continues to grow, energy use is expected to rise by one third in 2035. To avoid global warming and its consequences, the situation calls for technologies that can maximize energy efficiency. With the Danfoss Smart Store concept, we reveal some of the exciting opportunities available in order to constantly maximize energy efficiency in food retail. Our long-term ambition is to enable net-zero stores or even stores that give more than they take in terms of energy.
