Your Food Matters—2018 and beyond

The year is coming to a close, and what a year it’s been. From awards to new certifications and partnerships, 2018 has been extremely exciting for VersaCold. This spring, we introduced our new tagline, Your Food Matters, as a commitment to making our customers and our customers’ food our top priority. And we have taken many steps this year to keep that promise.

Let’s take a look back at some of the year’s great accomplishments.

A fascinating look back at the historical VersaCold Harbour facility

Posted by VersaCold on Nov 2, 2016 10:51:30 AM

Since 1949, VersaCold has owned and operated the cold storage facility at 2115 Commissioner Street in Vancouver, BC. At its opening, the newly constructed Harbour facility was hailed as “Canada’s most modern refrigeration plant,” and it would eventually employ over 150 personnel, with a strong focus on the fishing and frozen goods industries. Over the past 70 years, VersaCold is proud to have operated this facility and to have become Canada’s largest provider of supply chain services for temperature-sensitive and related products. However, just as the times and requirements of the industry change – we must change as well.

 For this reason, we are announcing that VersaCold has been asked to vacate the property and allow the port to repurpose its use by removing the buildings and related infrastructure from the property. While our history will be tied forever to this location, we are excited to see what the future holds for this area. As the end of the facility lease with the Port of Vancouver approaches, to commemorate our long history at 2115 Commissioner Street, we wanted to take a look back through historical photos of this remarkable facility and what made it so innovative for its time.
