MINICRYO®️ innovation

Cold on-demand or “the right cooling at the right time”

Online grocery shopping shopping is becoming more and more popular and new ways of delivery are developing : click & go, pedestrian click & drive, click & collect lockers and home delivery.

These distribution channel, and especially home delivery, are very challenging for e-grocery operators whose reputation depends on of the quality of the groceries delivered and the home delivery service.

OLIVO therefore aims to support these operators by providing them with smart and efficient logistic solutions to ensure cold chain compliance.

Drawing on 15 plus years of experience working with last mile logistics providers, OLIVO, and its longstanding partner, MESSER, have together developed a brand-new, state-of-the-art innovative cooling system: MINICRYO®️ the cryogenic refrigeration.

The principle is quite simple, the system comprises the MINICRYO®️ insulated tote, fitted with a lid used as a tank, and the SNOWDROP®️ automated dry ice snow production unit.

This solution guarantees the required temperature (chilled: +2°C/+4°C or frozen: <-18°C) is maintained throughout the target transport time, based on your specifications.

The main advantage of MINICRYO® cryogenic cold system is the “on-demand” production of just the amount of dry ice snow you require, no more no less.

This is achieved thanks to the SNOWDROP® machine which produces dry ice snow by expanding liquid CO2 to atmospheric pressure on demand.

The SNOWDROP® machine goes even further by automatically measuring out the dry ice directly into the MINICRYO® lid. The amount of dry ice placed in the MINICRYO® lid is exactly the quantity required for the home delivery in question (based on your specifications).

The secure MINICRYO® lid ensures the safety of people and products throughout the delivery process from the order picker to the end consumer.

This innovation will be of a particular interest to distribution centers making a substantial number of deliveries daily.

The principles of cryogenic refrigeration and the SIBER SYSTEM® cold service station have been transposed to BOX, insulated boxes whose size is better suited to home delivery and other last mile deliveries requirements.


The innovative MINICRYO® system can be fully automated if required/preferred (customised case study).
