Frozen Food Locker Facilities

Frozen Food Lockers are food storage units held at a temperature less than 5ºF, and where the individual units do not exceed 25 cubic feet of space. The locker space is leased to private parties for the storage of food items for their own personal use.  This license does not apply to a business that commercially warehouses food products for themselves or on behalf of others.

Frozen Food locker facilities must obtain a Frozen Food Locker Plant License from the Department, which will be valid for two years.  To apply for a license, the Frozen Food Locker Plant License Application with applicable fees must be submitted for all facilities that meet the above criteria.

A frozen food storage facility that is a sub-let to other businesses and also uses the facility for storage and distribution of its own products would need to obtain a Processed Food Registration for their business. Businesses that fall under this category must also complete a PFR application and submit it to the Department with appropriate fees.
