The Cool Move: A low carbon cold chain & agro-logistic accelerator program for Africa, at the intersection of food & energy
The lack of cold storage infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa is a critical bottleneck to the development of local value chains and a major contributor towards for food losses, especially in the rapidly emerging fruits, vegetables, dairy, livestock and fishery sectors. Currently, most local value chains suffer from poor cold chain infrastructure, lack of access to relevant and suitable financing mechanisms, lack of access to markets, knowledge and technology.
This cold chain event will focus on promoting the development of cold chain solutions (both accessibility and utilisation) in rural areas, based on bankable and scalable business models, via appropriate financial solutions and backed by market linkages and data.
