EPTA AND SAPORI & DINTORNI IN CONQUEST OF ITALY’S “FOOD VALLEY”

03/12/2015

Conad confirms its confidence in Costan and Eurocryor for its new Sapori & Dintorni sales outlet in Parma, measuring around 1000 m2: a charming location inside the premises of a former covered market. The project is an important one and marks Conad’s contribution to the revitalization of an area located in the city’s heart, renewing the concept of the neighbourhood store. Parma’s new Sapori & Dintorni flanks innovative services, which also include a quick service restaurant, with the area’s rich offering of DOC, PDO and PGI certified traditional specialities produced by small and medium sized local companies. The goal is to satisfy the demands of the growing numbers of consumers in search of high-quality, tasty foods.

With this in mind, Epta proposed to Conad an array of Costan and Eurocryor brand solutions that complement the outstanding qualities of the Emilia region’s agri-food heritage and promote respect for the environment. One particularity of the installation is the innovative EptaBlue Waterloop, an ideal system for sales outlets like this store in Piazza Ghiaia, in the city’s centre, where the available space is extremely limited. It is a solution that, connected to all the refrigeration units like freezers and display cabinets, transforms them from remote cooled to plug-ins by exploiting a closed water circuit. The result is extreme efficiency and sustainability for this installation which uses water as a green refrigerant, thereby slashing emissions.

In addition, the layout conceived by Costan promotes both fresh and frozen products to the maximum thanks to the Rossini serve-over, chosen in the Ultra version for displaying meats and in the SV version for charcuterie, milk products and cheeses, and to ElephantUP, a horizontal freezer that is ideal for ensuring superior visibility and easy access to the displayed products.

Finally, Eurocryor adds a touch of elegance to sustainability with its Panorama and Twin Midi solutions Featuring a minimal, modern design characterized by straight lines and hints of transparencies, these horizontal display cases become elements of an architectural composition able to give a sophisticated lightness to the complexity of the whole, for a high-impact effect in the Pastry & Bakery and Gastronomy area.
