SnoTemp expands in Eugene

SnoTemp is adding 94,280 square feet of mostly deep-freeze space to its 165,000 square foot cold storage facility in west Eugene.

Pallets full of pints of ice cream and boxes of frozen desserts are stacked high in the cavernous warehouse, which is kept at a frosty minus 20 degrees.

But the 43,000-square-foot deep freezer just isn’t big enough to accommodate the growth of SnoTemp’s customers, [general manager Jason] Lafferty said. They include local frozen dessert manufacturers Oregon Ice Cream Co., Ciao Bella Gelato, Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss, and Turtle Mountain, maker of So Delicious dairy-free products.

SnoTemp also needs more cold storage for other customers, such as the rapidly growing local craft breweries Ninkasi Brewing Co. and Oakshire Brewing, he said.
