Hi Diabetes Headquarters
I met Gael & Vic on a Sunday night the day before I had to fly out to Lebanon. They supplied me with the Frio insulation wallet and Harper bag for my Bydueron pen. Thank you for helping me.

History of FRIO

History of FRIO
In the early 1990s when Garnet Wolsey and his late wife Althea, developed a range of cooling head, neck and wrist bands for their youngest daughter Helen Wolsey.

Their daughter Helen was British Powerlifting Champion and represented Great Britain and achieved World Champion status in 1991-92 and 1992-93, today Helen is the head of the Design Department at FRIO UK.

During the 1991 World Powerlifting Championship held in New Delhi, the temperature in the ‘warm up’ room was measured at 110°F.

It was at this point that the , working with scientists, developed the cooling crystals which are today found in FRIO wallets to cool contents through evaporation.

Previously, sports people relied on single-use disposable cooling bands. With the invention of water activated crystals, the new cooling bands could be reactivated for more convenient continual use.

In 1996 these revolutionary cooling bands were used by the British Olympic and Paralympic teams in Atlanta.

Garnet and Althea realised that their cooling technology was transferable and could perfectly meet the needs of people with diabetes.

The development of the world’s first patented cooling wallet followed, with production commencing on the family farm.

The FRIO wallet soon became a worldwide phenomenon and with growing demand, FRIO built a production, storage and distribution headquarters at the original location.

In 2011, Helen’s brother Chris was appointed as the Managing Director of FRIO.
