“While many factors contribute to the post-harvest losses, a major cause in many developing countries is lack of a functioning cold chain. The cold chain is the uninterrupted temperature controlled transport and storage system of perishable goods between producers and consumers.
Carrier, as a world leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions is committed to developing scalable & sustainable solutions to expand and improve the cold chain to reduce food loss and waste, while reducing the impact on climate change that food waste creates. Today, only around 10 percent of perishable foods are refrigerated worldwide, yet refrigeration is the best technology, with no associated risks, to prolong the shelf life of perishable food.
Highlighting the need to create platform of discussion with all the stakeholders, Carrier organizes the World Cold Chain Summit to Reduce Food an annual event convening global leaders in the supply chain private sector, academia, NGOs and government.”
