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.

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
