Fighting Food Loss and Waste
Although more than enough food is produced to feed everyone on the planet, much of it is lost or wasted before reaching a consumer. The process by which perishable food is maintained from the 'farm gate to food plate' is the cold chain. Many countries around the world face challenges in securing access to safe and reliable food due to lack of understanding, knowledge and investment in cold chain best practices and infrastructure.
GCCA is dedicated to the proper handling and storage of perishable products and the development of systems and best practices for the safe, efficient, and reliable movement of food to the people of the world. Through our nonprofit core sector, the Global Cold Chain Foundation (GCCF), GCCA supports international cold chain development through partnerships with donors, NGOs, governments, educational institutions, local associations, and private sector businesses to promote business to business knowledge through training, education, and research.
Since 2002, GCCF has completed more than 110 projects in over 65 countries.
