Connected Food Retail solutions from case to cloud
Together with forward-thinking retailers around the world Danfoss has taken sustainable food retail solutions to the next level through constant development of sustainable technologies and service concepts.
Danfoss Food Retail solutions offer high efficient refrigeration systems optimized for CO₂ refrigeration and other natural refrigerants. Danfoss components are designed to provide the lowest total cost of ownership, while at the same time reducing the carbon footprint of your supermarket refrigeration system.
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.
Danfoss Enterprise Services
Did you ever wonder why you need 24/7 monitoring of your stores? There are many good reasons, the first being good food quality and high food safety.
Danfoss ADAP-KOOL solutions have been developed based on more than 30 years of close cooperation with the global community of food retailers through and more than 80 years in the HVAC industry. Danfoss continuously develops its portfolio of components, controllers and advanced algorithms with the long-term ambition to create net-zero stores or even stores that give more energy than they take.
As a market leader with more than 50,000 food retail installations worldwide, Danfoss leads the development of integrated food retail refrigeration control solutions. Our experienced food retail specialists are ready to help you finding the right solution for your supermarket.

CO₂ in food retail
Danfoss has pioneered CO₂ refrigeration systems for more than 10 years. Learn more about our CO₂ refrigeration solutions for supermarkets here.
Accurate temperature and operation control of display cases and cold rooms are vital for high-quality and safe food products. Find your solution here.
Small format stores
Small Store Solutions from Danfoss are adapted to the particular requirements of small stores when it comes to food retail refrigeration.
The Smart Store solution enhances food safety and brings down the energy bill by integrated and smart control of refrigeration, HVAC, lighting and other applications.
AKV electric expansion valves
AKV are electrically operated expansion valves designed for refrigerating plants. The AKV valves are normally controlled by a controller from Danfoss’ range of ADAP-KOOL® controllers.
CCMT electric regulating valves, transcritical CO₂
The CCMT is an electric operated valve designed specifically for operation in CO2 systems. The valve is capable of functioning either as an expansion valve, as a pressure regulator for the gascooler or as a gas bypass valve with back-pressure regulation in trans-critical or subcritical applications.
Compressor and condenser controllers
Danfoss offers a range of compressor and condenser capacity controls for use in food retail, in compact systems as well as in large power packs.
CTR electric expansion valves, transcritical CO₂
CTR 3-way heat reclaim valve is designed to allow full proportional control of the surplus heat from compressor pack into the heat exchanger of transcritical heat reclaim solutions, securing availability of heat and hot water. The CTR valve prevents pressure peaks eliminating costly system down-time and the risk of insufficient heat supply for store heating and hot water, regardless of installation size. The valve features combi connections allowing for both solder/braze and welding.
Evaporator and room control
Danfoss offers a range of evaporator controls with thermostatic expansion valves or with electric expansion valves.
Russia’s first transcritical CO₂ hypermarket
In Voskresensk, Russian retailer Magnit has opened the first hypermarket in Russia using a transcritical booster refrigeration system with carbon dioxide (CO₂) — an eco-friendly and natural refrigerant.
Engineering a cool supermarket with Danfoss technology
As part of the luxury shopping mall Paseo La Galeria, Danfoss has supplied a refrigeration control system for the supermarket “Superseis”, and systems management for better energy efficiency in the food refrigeration application.
Italy's largest hypermarket opts for CO₂ refrigeration
The use of transcritical CO₂ refrigeration in warm climates has been a hot topic for many years. In Milan, the 10,000 m2 brand new Iper market is a pioneer in transcritical CO₂ refrigeration systems using ejector technology to enhance efficiency in temperatures up to 38 °C.
A case study on ejector efficiency based on four test sites
The F-gas regulation in Europe and similar legislation in other parts of the world push for low-GWP solutions in food retail refrigeration. CO₂ is proving to be one of the most efficient low-GWP refrigerants thanks to the unique properties of the gas combined with technological discoveries that pave the way for optimum utilization of these properties.
CO₂ energy efficiency in supermarkets
Interest in carbon dioxide (CO₂) as a refrigerant in food retail applications has never been more intense than it is today and as such, there has been a lot of discussion with regards to the energy efficiency of these systems. The energy discussion is focused on two factors: climate change performance and financial justification.
Get your home heated by the supermarket
Can you take surplus heat out of a supermarket’s cooling counters and use it to secure comfortable temperatures in neighboring houses during winter? You bet. It’s already happening in a supermarket in Hoeruphav, Denmark
Danfoss is proud to declare: "We love CO₂", and with the Multi Ejector Solution™ you will tooTuesday, February 27, 2018
CO2 is often regarded as the “big problem” when it comes to climate change. While in some regards it is a hazard, in other situations it can be the answer. In fact, when used as a refrigerant, CO2 can make a big difference when it comes to keeping people, products, and our planet cool.
CO₂ on the move in 2017: bringing hands-on CO₂ training to the customersThursday, February 22, 2018
Over the last year, Danfoss has been on a mission. Our objective? Increase the knowledge and understanding of CO2 as a refrigerant.
Danfoss and SMA subsidiary coneva GmbH add green energy to your supermarket's daily offerWednesday, February 21, 2018
Usually your local grocer’s main mission is to supply you with fresh and healthy products. But soon, supermarkets will save the day and enable the energy transition by adding green energy to the offer. Supermarkets will allow us to integrate more renewable energy into the energy grid and you can of course charge your electric car while you shop. Danfoss A/S and SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) will demonstrate this in a pilot project in an aktiv & irma supermarket in Oldenburg.
