EPTA AND MIGROSS, AN “A CLASS” PARTNERSHIP

A partnership based on an eco-sustainable philosophy: this is the common thread underlying the integrated solutions produced by the brands Costan and Eurocryor from the Epta Group for the new Migross store in Caprino Veronese.

A store with a “green heart” through which Migross wants to highlight its attention to the requirements of the local community in Caprino Veronese, where it has been trading for more than 20 years. Migross’s respect for the area can be seen for example in the use of dark stone cladding for the external façade of the store so that the building is more successfully integrated within the mountainous landscape. Moreover the supermarket, which has a surface area of around 1,500 m2, has an A class energy certification, thanks to its choice of state of the art refrigeration solutions, the use of LED lighting and, last but not least, the installation of solar panels on the roof (42 Kw).

More specifically, in order to respond to Migross’s requirement of reducing the building’s carbon footprint, Epta proposed a CO2 cascade system along with Costan and Eurocryor cabinets, which combine high efficiency with a better presentation of products. These include GranVista and Aeria UP Closed, the vertical and semi-vertical chillers, the traditional Rossini Design Convertible cabinet, that is also available in the Tavola Calda version for hot food and the Cayman UP vertical cabinet for frozen food from the Rev UP Family. It is an exclusive range that enabled the whole store to be fitted-out with a single family of products, thanks to a winning mix of style and technology: from the bakery to cold cuts & cheeses, to deli products and the butcher’s department, through to the fresh and frozen foods area, for a high impact end result that also ensures the highest level of energy saving.

Moreover, to enhance the appeal of the self-serve cold cuts, Epta went for the Eurcoryor branded Twin Mini: a display island with extensive customisation possibilities that is characterised by a transparent back panel that helps to attract the attention of consumers thanks to a natural lighting that highlights the freshness of the products. The special design of Twin Mini also enables fresh foodstuffs to be presented inside the cabinet along with dry items on top of the cabinet, in order to increase cross-selling.

Finally, Epta installed Costan branded promotional islands, the panoramic version Chorus and the semi-panoramic Rhapsody. These compact and efficient plug-ins were designed to respond to Retailer requirements of increasing impulse purchases while ensuring a lower environmental impact, thanks to the choice of propane R290 as a natural refrigerant. Propane R290 offers a high performance coefficient and a GWP that is about 1300 times lower than synthetic gases like R404A.
