From the Cooling Post:
The Cold Chain Database and Modelling initiative, launched by the Global Food Cold Chain Council (GFCCC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) OzonAction, is seen as being key to the framework proposed by GFCCC for supporting the expansion of a sustainable cold chain on a global basis. It was published in advance of next month’s United Nations Food Systems Summit…
“The framework we are proposing will allow countries to expand their cold chain sustainably, thereby increasing food security, expanding economic opportunity, and realising significant environmental benefits,” said GFCCC executive director Kevin Fay. “It is a road map that the international community can embrace.”
The Cold Chain Database concept, methodology and data collection questionnaires are offered to interested countries and partners to help in assessing local cold chain capacities and designing respective action plans and policies.
