Commenting on the launch of the new generation of Monoblock, Sanjeev Maheshwari, Refrigeration General Manager at Daikin Middle East and Africa said, “According to reports, nearly a third of all food produced each year1 is squandered or lost before it can be consumed. With the launch of a new generation of Monoblock, we have reiterated our commitment to innovation, sustainability, food security, and safety and marked it as the most pivotal moment for Daikin in the region. Supporting the safe and secure supply of perishable foods from farm to fork, as we say, our innovative and sustainable solutions help businesses to reduce their carbon emissions alongside food waste, both of which help us to protect the planet better and increase efficiency.”


“Cold-chain solutions that meet energy efficiency and sustainability standards will be critical to the growth of the regional food manufacturing industry. With our latest product reveal – our Monoblock refrigerant solutions - small and medium-sized businesses can enjoy our effective, reliable, and sustainable refrigerant solution”, said Maheshwari.

The Monoblock of the future enables businesses to manage their stock better and is suitable to both medium and low temperature rooms sized from 4 to 25 m3. In addition to delivering high efficiency and energy savings, the Monoblock also operates with minimal noise and ensures flexibility of business operations. It is the first Daikin-engineered and branded commercial refrigeration unit manufactured at its Zanotti plant in Italy.
