Food and Pharmaceutical Security in Africa

As a result of the capital intensive nature of developing effective cold chain, the current market capacity for independent cold chain in Sub-Sahara Africa remains very small, leading to significant food loss and restrictions on economic growth in the region.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), up to 50% of fresh food produce in Sub-Sahara Africa spoils before it reaches a consumer.

90% of these losses result from inefficient cold chain.
