Maintaining Food Safety in Albert Lea, MN, for Global and Local Markets Equally

At Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company (MFWC), we trace our beginnings back to 1915 when the Newell family began working with the dairy and produce industry as a storage provider. Since then, we’ve worked with hundreds of customers from local farm cooperatives to Fortune 500 companies. We are committed to all of our customers, big or small, in promoting the continued improvement of food safety practices and playing our own part in global food safety as a climate-controlled food storage provider. In our dedication to upholding quality food storage values and worldwide standards for food safety in Albert Lea, MN, and across the country, MFWC maintains best practices for warehouse facilities and excellence in service for all our customers.


Working with such a wide range of food providers can pose some challenges when it comes to accommodating the needs of each customer and making every service affordable and reliable. Fortunately, MFWC is blessed with our team of hardworking warehouse employees, project managers, customer service providers, and other outstanding employees. We are happy to say that our team rises to the occasion whenever a challenge is presented, and all our employees play a vital part in maintaining food safety.
