Arctic Glacier’s primary product is packaged ice sold under
the brand name Arctic Glacier®
Premium Ice. Packaged ice for human consumption is sold in various
package sizes ranging from 2.7 to 12 kilograms in our Canadian markets
and from 5 to 40 pounds in our United States markets where it is
used by consumers as a refrigerant to keep perishables cold and
as a food product to chill their favorite beverages.
Packaged ice products are also supplied to a variety of commercial
users including bakeries and meat processors. Arctic Glacier®
Premium Ice is used as an ingredient in many bakery products containing
yeast, such as bread. The ice is used to chill the water used in
the dough and control the rate at which the dough rises to ensure
optimum quality and taste. Arctic Glacier®
Premium Ice is also used in the production of many processed meat
products such as sausage. Ice is used during the production process
to achieve the optimum temperature range for grinding, mixing and
binding the ingredients together.
Arctic Glacier also produces ice in bulk containers that are sold
primarily to poultry processors, the commercial fishing industry,
chemical plants and concrete plants.
Arctic Glacier generates a small amount of revenue from the sale
of other ancillary products such as bottled water, dry ice, packaged
wood, rock salt, and ice-making and dispensing equipment in certain
