Switch from Dehydrating

It's better for business

Why Freeze Dry

Why use traditional dehydrating methods when you can freeze dry? Freeze drying is one of the fastest-growing segments of human and pet food production, prolonging the life of products with less nutrient degradation. Freeze drying has been shown to be more effective than dehydration at preserving flavor, color and nutritional content, making it a better alternative that keeps your product quality and consistency higher than ever. The Summit® unit from Parker Freeze Dry is designed to extend the impact, growth and profitability of your business. With a 97.5 lb. capacity and 15 individual trays, the Summit® can replace several tabletop units to streamline your operations, cut back on maintenance and repairs, and scale your growth.

Grow your Business in a Growing Field

From nutraceuticals to pet food, beverages and human food, the freeze-dried industry is growing – and for good reason. See how companies like Foodynamics have innovated in the freeze-drying category to see rapid growth.



“I think freeze drying is recession proof, and it’s only going to flourish. Have you ever had freeze dried strawberries or freeze-dried yogurt? It’s amazing. It’s not diluted by the moisture, and the product has a very intense flavor to it. Freeze drying is probably going to be one of the most popular food segments in the world and in the pet industry.”
