GCCA Success Stories

The cold chain industry is one of the most important developments for food safety and reduction in food loss, especially for certain highly nutritious products such as meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables. These products all depend on temperature stability to prevent damage and preserve nutrition. Without a viable cold chain, countries suffer high rates of food loss. They also face problems when it comes to food safety and are often unable to export their products, which prevents them from growing economically.

The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) works to grow the industry and lead the cold chain. As a global organization, GCCA recognizes that the cold chain industry in many countries has not yet developed; it is still in the very early stages and is often in need of assistance. With this in mind, the GCCA supports the cold chain where it is needed the most through our core partner, the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO), the research, training, and educational arm of the GCCA. By partnering with aid organizations and international development partners, the GCCA and WFLO help emerging economies and lower-income countries meet the challenges presented when growing a global cold chain.
