We’re in for another hard lockdown here in the Philippines and everyone is urged to limit their mobility. With the threat of the highly transmissible Delta variant, many opts to do shopping and even doing grocery online.
Do you need to stock up on chicken, beef or pork during the lockdown but want to make sure that these arrive clean and virus-free? Are you craving for fresh salmon but unsure that what you’d get isn’t sterilized or fresh enough for your grill? Are you anxious your frozen veggies would turn soggy and not be safe to eat when the courier rings up?
Gerald.ph is here to banish all the fears, uncertainties, and anxieties that surround getting frozen or chilled foods delivered right at your doorstep as frozen, cold, and fresh as they were first flash frozen. Only Gerald.ph delivers your favorite foods in −20°C from their freezer to your home! This quality asssurance also comes with a guarantee that deliveries have been sterilized and thus far from the dangers of a Covid-19 infection.
Dispelling the Fear of Frozen Foods
“People didn’t believe in frozen food,” started Gerald Egrasse, a French food industry veteran whose experience in France and French Africa led him to the Philippines, “but frozen is mostly defrosted food, thawed in transit, then frozen again at home.”
Quality is lost from the time of purchase until the product reaches the home kitchen. “Undergoing multiple temperature changes from the market and multiple defrosting robs food of quality,” he explained, “worse, when they’re stored in less than −20°C.” Frozen food begins to deteriorate when temperatures go up, so freezing is key to fresh foods: flash freezing at the source and keeping in negative temperature from storage to delivery. Only Gerald.ph can do that in the Philippines!
