Spray foam makes over the main production facility for Amyʼs Kitchen, the worldʼs largest
natural and organic frozen food provider.

Anybody thatʼs been to the frozen-food aisle of the supermarket knows about Amyʼs Kitchen. Itʼs that brand offering a variety of rozen fare that looks and sounds instantly more delectable than
its generic counterparts: Indian Spinach Tofu Wrap. Roasted Vegetable
Pesto Pizza. Mexican Tamale Pie. Whatʼs more, every food item is 100%
organic and natural, and theyʼve built a very successful brand on it:
Amyʼs Kitchen produces more than 5 million meals per month.
The Amyʼs Kitchen brand is based not only on the nutritional value
of the food, but also on how the food is prepared and packaged.
Thatʼs why the food industry giant chose to retrofit the ceiling of its
main production facility with spray foam. In a massive undertaking,
California-based Wedge Roofing Inc. gave the ceiling and roof
structure of the building an updated insulation system in a move
that made the quality of the facility match that of the food being
prepared within it.
Amyʼs primary production site lies in Petaluma, California, with a
factory stretching over 110,000 square feet. The original insulation
that covered the ceiling consisted of fiberglass batt with a vapor cover
over it. However, time had taken its toll on the poor insulation system.
