With more than 30 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled storage capacity, Flint River is one of the nation’s largest independent cold storage companies. It operates Georgia-based campuses in Albany, Unadilla, and Rincon/Savannah and has provided cold storage services to customers in the frozen food, poultry, blueberry, and peanut industries for 18-plus years.
