Ice is available for wholesale in Pittsburgh. Ice is the frozen form of water- the solid form. This is used for storing a number of food items, as it enables the food to remain at such a low temperature that microbes can't grow on it and spoil it. It can also be added to cool beverages and desserts. Ice is also needed in restaurants, food trucks, liquor stores and convenience stores. The wholesalers send bulk orders of ice upon request, in trucks that reach as soon as possible. The ice can come in various weight categories, such as 40-pound bags,10-pound blocks, 300-pound carving blocks, 7-pound bags, 20-pound bags, dry ice, crushed ice and cubed ice. Merchandisers for ice, ice trucks and snowmaking facilities may also be available with the wholesaler in Pittsburgh.
