On July 24, 2012, the cold chain industry lost Donald V. Schlimme, Ph.D, a remarkable man who was an invaluable resource to many individuals and companies. Nearly every member of the Global Cold Chain Alliance probably met and received advice from Schlimme at some point. A member of the WFLO Scientific Advisory Committee since 1983 and a WFLO Staff Advisor for many of those years, Schlimme was an expert in the science of cold storage and was committed to sharing his extensive knowledge. He taught at the University of Maryland and the WFLO Institute.
In July 2012, Larry Rauch (WFLO Chairman, 2012-2013) announced the formation of the WFLO Don Schlimme Scholarship Fund to honor Schlimme’s memory and develop young professionals in the cold chain industry.
