Olivo in a few words

Leader in insulated containers

At the end of the 1960s supermarkets were a new phenomenon and developing fast. The first frozen foods began to appear.

This raised the question of how to transport these frozen foodstuffs to the shop freezer.  The first OLIVO Roll insulated containers were produced in 1970. This product was an insulated ROLL container on casters equipped with a dry ice drawer designed to transport frozen food.

OLIVO is a French company with a background in the plastics industry which produces insulated containers and cooling systems.
