Alba Manufacturing has joined the Global Cold Chain Alliance.
The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) is the world’s leading resource for finding refrigerated warehousing and logistics providers, cold storage design/build companies, temperature-controlled transportation, and cold chain industry suppliers.
The organization is comprised of three associations and one foundation, called Core Partners. GCCA serves as the focused voice of the cold chain industry, representing 1,100 member companies in over 85 countries.
What is the Cold Chain?
The cold chain refers to managing the temperature of perishable products in order to maintain quality and safety from the point of origin through the distribution chain to the final consumer.
Fighting Food Loss and Waste
Although more than enough food is produced to feed everyone on the planet, much of it is lost or wasted before reaching a consumer. The process by which perishable food is maintained from the “farm gate to food plate” is the cold chain. Many countries around the world face challenges in securing access to safe and reliable food due to lack of understanding, knowledge and investment in cold chain best practices and infrastructure.
GCCA Members Play a Role in Developing the Cold Chain
GCCA is dedicated to the proper handling and storage of perishable products and the development of systems and best practices for the safe, efficient, and reliable movement of food to the people of the world. Through our nonprofit core partner, the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO), GCCA supports international cold chain development through partnerships with donors, NGOs, governments, educational institutions, local associations, and private sector businesses to promote business to business knowledge through training, education, and research.
Since 2002, WFLO has completed more than 110 projects in over 65 countries.
Alba is proud to join such a vast number of quality providers and suppliers.
