RLS Logistics, a member of the Global Cold Chain Alliance, won the 2018 Wrangler Award presented by Food Cowboy Foundation. Food Cowboy Foundation serves as a strategic partner to GCCA, working to reduce food loss and waste by implementing innovative solutions to redirect food away from landfills. RLS Logistics is a New-Jersey based temperature controlled and logistics provider that has been a member of GCCA for 19 years. The Wrangler Award is an annual initiative that was launched in 2018 to recognize leadership in reducing waste within the food industry.
RLS Logistics demonstrated their commitment to reducing waste through their support and use of Food Cowboy’s donation hotline, which connects food donors with organizations who provide meals to those in need. Over 60,000 pounds of fresh and frozen food, with almost 60% of the food donated being high quality protein, were donated to those in need. The Global Cold Chain alliance commends RLS Logistics for their commitment to reducing waste within the food industry and making a positive impact in the community.
