Gurgaon, Haryana, India
PLUSS, a Research & Innovation company, providing innovative and impactful solutions for making customer lives easy, has come up with yet another technological marvel, the first refrigerator on the go – PronGO Bags. This ‘make in India’ product, PronGO™, is specifically designed understanding the needs of the customers to enable them carry food products that require temperature control and transported safely protecting its quality. Hence, the name is derived from the mission to enable more ‘PROducts on the Go’.
PronGO uses savE®, an advanced phase change materials (PCM) technology combined with thermally insulating materials that enable specific temperature control. Various food products like dairy, frozen, chilled veg or non-veg, needs to be stored at different temperature. Allowing food to go beyond the desired storage temperature leads to bacterial growth, deterioration in quality and taste. This unique product can keep food products at -15 deg C for upto 5 hours.PronGO bag is available in 3 litre capacity.
Speaking about the uniqueness of PronGO, Vishnu Sasidharan, Vice President, New Product Initiatives at Pluss said, “PronGO is developed to cater to the daily problem of transporting frozen foods or other critical items for long hours. PronGO uses indigenous technology that makes it extremely simple to use by anyone. With PronGO, it is now possible for people to take ice cream or frozen food to any outdoor picnic. It also enable shopping of frozen food products and retain the product integrity till you get home
Technology behind PronGO enables solutions for four major temperature categories.
+2 to +8 deg C (Dairy products, Fruits & vegetables),
-2 deg C to ‐10 deg C (Raw meat and sea food)
‐10 deg C to ‐18 deg C (Ice‐creams and other frozen products)
+15 to +25 deg C (Chocolates & confectionary)
This is an improvement over the conventional solution of using ice packs that do not provide differential temperature control.
Samit Jain, Managing Director, PLUSS, said, “PronGo exemplifies what PLUSS stands for; simple products to address everyday problems faced by common people in their day to day life. A completely ‘make in India’ initiative, we believe that PronGo will go a long way in solving common woes of preserving frozen food while transporting it in extreme summer.”
It does not matter where you are, you will be able to relish frozen delicacies just the way they are supposed to be, without compromising on their freshness.
