Cold Connection

Cold Chain Assessment Underway in Guinea

A team of representatives from the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), including Congebec Logistics' Denis Coulombe, GCCA Director of International Projects Amanda Brondy and GCCA Senior Technical Director Stephen Neel, headed to Guinea in early January to conduct a cold chain assessment for the horticulture and meat sectors in four regions of Guinea: Mamou, Labe, Faranah, and Kindia.

The team’s objective is to provide an inventory of the cold chain infrastructure that currently exists and identify opportunities for project interventions to lay the foundation for a cold chain to be developed. Interestingly, the team has uncovered several cold rooms that were built in 2012, but have never been used. GCCA will work with the project and owners of these facilities to determine what can be done to utilize these spaces.

The team will continue the cold chain assessment throughout the remainder of January.
