Thor Ice specializes in developing, producing, and managing slurry ice systems for rapid chilling of fresh food products, such as poultry, meat, and fish, during processing.
With the increasing demand for rapid and effective chilling of various fresh food products, Thor Ice has developed innovative slurry ice systems through years of extensive engineering, mechanical, biological and business knowledge and experience. Since 2002, we have been at the forefront of slurry ice cooling technology, developing the revolutionary and patented IceGun® system.
Thor Ice has run extensive tests in collaboration with respected scientists, institutes, leading industry food processors, and industry partners in Europe. These tests have confirmed the system’s effectiveness in chilling and reducing bacteria growth, thereby extending shelf life and increasing food safety.
Our main objective is to improve the freshness, quality, and safety of food products while delivering environmentally friendly solutions to the food-processing industry.
In 2019, Thor Ice was chosen by EIT Food to join their RisingFoodStars organisation, an elite group of highly innovative scaleups whose innovations have a high potential of transforming the food system. EIT Food is supported by a body of the European Union. It is Europe’s leading initiative for innovation with the aim of achieving a more healthy, trusted and sustainable food system.
In 2020, Thor Ice secured a Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) grant as part of the European Union’s largest research and innovation program, Horizon 2020. The grant builds on business-driven actions and industry involvement to get groundbreaking innovations to market and ensure quick business up-take.
Thor Ice has received substantial funding from the Icelandic Technology Development Fund to fully develop its systems as well as carry out extensive tests in industrial conditions to confirm the systems’ effectiveness. The fund is competitive and supports research and development for new innovations.
In 2020, Thor Ice received funding from the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO). NEFCO finances projects that relate to climate actions and sustainability.
