The world of refrigeration extends far beyond the more visible applications such as domestic fridges, ice rinks or display cabinet chillers at supermarkets.

The refrigeration industry is present in a broad range of sectors from air conditioning to the food industry. It plays an often overlooked role in healthcare, energy and the environment.

Considering its technological impact on the storage, transportation and delivery of perishable foods and temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical products (especially vaccines), refrigeration can be credited with the preservation of human life.

The significant contributions made by refrigeration in these wide-ranging domains also underscore its economic importance. In Australia, the refrigeration industry is estimated to contribute about 1.7 per cent to national GDP.

Take a look at the organisations, businesses, and companies working in Australian refrigeration, and their products/services on offer.
