Six Food-Grade Refrigerated Warehouses in the Southeast

Southeast Food Distribution operates six separate refrigerated warehouses covering the southeastern United States. They provide food-grade facilities for dry and cold storage. All the warehouses are fully racked.

Each warehouse has storage rooms at a variety of temperatures to meet the storage needs of food manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Our warehouses have rooms from -20 degrees to ambient. The entire warehouse facility including the dock areas are designed to keep food products at the appropriate temperatures and backup generators are available in case of power failure.

At our refrigerated and frozen warehouses we regularly store ice cream, fish, shrimp, crawfish, seafood, turkeys, other poultry and other frozen, refrigerated and dry food products.
