To promote sustainable cold chains in the lead up to the United Nations Food Systems Summit and in support of the Rome Declaration on the Contribution of the Montreal Protocol to Food Loss Reduction through Sustainable Cold Chain Development a virtual exhibition for sustainable cold chains will be launched on World Ozone Day 2021 (16 September). The exhibition will be featured during the UN Food System Summit (September 2021), and the 33rd Meeting of Parties to the Montreal Protocol (23 - 29 October 2021) and beyond.
The exhibition aims to highlight the critical role of cold chains in ensuring food safety and security, decreasing food waste and loss, reducing global warming, and preventing ozone layer depletion. It is a platform to demonstrate commercially available cold chain technologies, mainly targeting applications and equipment with refrigeration and cooling cycles that use ozone and climate-friendly refrigerants and have enhanced energy efficiency characteristics. In addition, the exhibition also aims to identify and highlight game changing and systemic approaches to cold chains. Food cold chain is the main focus, but cold chains for vaccines are also considered.
If you want to showcase your sustainable cold chain technologies and approaches in this virtual exhibition to inform policy makers, end-users and the public, check the call for nominations.
