On the 8th December 1899, the IOR was formed at a meeting chaired by R Leonard with 16 interested individuals. Initially known as the Cold Storage and Ice Association, reflecting the early days of refrigeration in the UK, which was based on ice imports.

To mark the formation of the IOR we are inviting members and guests to this informal historical talk on 4th December.
