Biedronka saves approx. 15%* energy with a total switch to CO2


The Polish discount retailer Biedronka uses MiniBooster to cool more than 600 food stores.

They are retrofitting small-format stores (600-900 m2) to CO2 refrigeration.

This is the largest project of transition from HFC to CO2 in food retail.
