Gases and technologies for the food and beverage sector

Ireland's Food and Beverage industry.

The manufacture of food and drink products is Ireland's most important indigenous industry with a turnover of € 27.5 billion. Irish Oxygen are proud to work with and support this industry in Ireland.

Irish Oxygen offers its customers tailor made solutions, working together to improve the quality standards of their products. Food products can be frozen with liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide, packaged in modified atmosphere, and controlled using nitrogen and other gases so that the appearance and taste are preserved. Crops and plants are treated in greenhouses with atmosphere rich in carbon dioxide, to accelerate and improve their growth. Fish are intensively farmed thanks to oxygen use. Spices and coffee can be ground at very low temperatures using liquid nitrogen, to preserve their aroma and quality. The gases supplied by Irish Oxygen are certified for use with food in accordance with European regulations.
