Freeze Frame interview with Lars Christensen of Plusice ApS in Denmark

The use of ice in Europe can be traced as far back to the days of ancient Rome. During winter, the Romans would bring it to Rome from the Alps, and then store it in underground ice houses until it was used in the summer. They even developed a way to make ice in North Africa where they would literally shield water in straw-lined pits (reflect the sun’s rays with their polished fighting shields) during the day. At night the temperature would fall low enough to freeze water. Pretty ingenious! Since those days many hundreds of years ago, the use of ice in Europe seemed to fall out of fashion, but today, the EPIA is once again promoting the production and use of ice in Europe. We, as modern day Icemen and Icewomen, are forging the way to making packaged ice a common everyday product used by all. We want to record the history we are making for future generations, and continuing a program we call “Freeze Frame” to tell the stories of our members. Below is the official Freeze Frame interview with Lars Christensen of Plusice ApS in Denmark.
