Consumer demand, access to energy and transportation infrastructure seen as critical factors to cold chain development in Kenya
The cold chain plays a critical role in reducing food waste, improving public health, and enabling developing countries to participate in international trade as both producers and consumers. An article in a recent issue of COLD FACTS Magazine examines the latest GCCA-WFLO projects advancing the African cold chain including work done in Nigeria, Kenya, Egypt, and Liberia. The article noted that in many African countries, the infrastructure needed to move food from farm to table is insufficient and sometimes nonexistent. In fact, Sub-Saharan Africa sees nearly 40 percent of food perish before it reaches a consumer. Representatives from GCCA recently traveled to Kenya to facilitate a training in business management for cold chain facilities, postharvest handling techniques, best practices for food safety and handing, accessing foreign markets, improved processing, supply chain logistics operations, and cold storage design and operations. The training manifested from a 2015 assessment of the cold chain in Kenya performed by GCCA in collaboration with the United States Department of Commerce. Read the full assessment report.More
