Demand for cold storage rising as middle class grows in South Africa
A growing middle class coupled with an influx of tourism has increased the need for cold storage in South Africa. This changing consumer is seeking more choices of fresh fruits throughout the year, as well as more prepared meals and convenience foods. As a result, the import of poultry, meat and fruit is on the rise. According to John Cunningham, Managing Director of Barpo Storage SA, the region's growth has been steady for approximately 15 years but "has slowed somewhat due to electricity constraints." There is a great need for energy management improvements. Read the full article, "South Africa: Gateway to the Continent for Cold Chain Industry" in the July-August COLD FACTS. GCCA will host the South Africa Cold Chain Summit 18-19 Oct. in Cape Town with sessions dedicated to improving energy management and efficiency. Learn more.More
