Cold Chain can Help Reduce Food Loss

 

SINGAPORE – Investment in the cold chain – specifically pre-cooling and transport refrigeration equipment – can reduce food loss by 76 percent and carbon dioxide equivalent emissions (CO2E) by 16 percent.

Those are the results of a pilot study on kinnow, a type of mandarin, commissioned by Carrier and released today at Carrier’s World Cold Chain Summit to Reduce Food Loss, held in Singapore. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).

According to a 2015 study produced for the Global Food Cold Chain Council, the introduction of refrigerated technologies in emerging economies can reduce the net greenhouse gas impact of food waste by a factor of 10 to 1.
