All the solutions we have,” explains Mitchell, “ from cold rooms to packhouses and slaughterhouses, are designed to minimize food loss and extend shelf life, for the benefit of both producers and the environment. For the 100+ units we have deployed across Africa, we have seen the value of good precooling, and its impact onpost-harvest losses, the economic advancement of growers, and the environment.”
