Dutch supermarket chain Boon’s Markt, part of the Boon Food Group, has fitted its newest store in the village of Wolphaartsdijk with propane (R290)-based refrigeration display cases from Lithuanian manufacturer Freor.
The new units are from the manufacturer’s Green Wave R290 product range and operate on a hydroloop glycol system that removes the heat of condensation.
Having made a commitment to maintain product freshness in the most efficient way, Boon’s Markt wanted an “environmentally friendly cooling solution,” and Freor’s R290-based system was the perfect fit, according to a recent statement from the manufacturer.
“[We are] committed to offering only top-quality commercial refrigeration solutions with the newest technologies, based on the latest R&D, putting the emphasis on the great presentation and preservation of merchandise,” said Freor.

Boon’s Markt has installed a range of Freor cases to provide its customers with a variety of products.
For medium temperature, the supermarket opted for Freor’s JUPITER multideck refrigerator units with glass doors, which provide “outstanding product presentation” and ensure freshness due to the balanced circulation of cold air between the shelves, according to the manufacturer.
Freor’s VEGA QB H2 multi-level self-service refrigerated counters were also selected. These units include design features that maximize product freshness, such as protection against glass fogging and even allocation of cool air throughout the display area.
To meet the supermarket’s low-temperature requirements, Freor’s ERIDA upright freezers preserve frozen products at temperatures of -18 to -21˚C (-0.4 to -5.8˚F), and -22 to -24˚C (-7.6 to -11.2˚F). The units include an anti-condensation foil to prevent fogging. According to the manufacturer, “cooling is expertly distributed throughout the inner spaces between the freezer shelves to provide an even temperature for all frozen merchandise.”
Boon’s Markt also chose Freor’s wide dual-compartment HELLA freezer island. Its “high panoramic glass lids” offer clear product visibility and reduced energy consumption, said Freor. A special defrost heater inside the freezer helps prevent buildups of frost and ice, ensuring better product preservation, the company added.
According to Freor, the HELLA R290 model “is a great choice for future-oriented retailers switching to green refrigeration.”
Freor’s Netherlands partner, Koelservice Van Tol, installed the supermarket’s new system.
