Food production is arguably the largest and most important commercial activity undertaken by mankind. However it is coming under increasing pressure from population growth, climate change, and growing demands from consumers and regulators.
Solutions are varied and there is no one “silver bullet” idea. Opportunities for improvement present themselves in many ways – from the continuous dissemination of supply chain and “cold chain” industry best practice ideas, to innovative contributions from the scientific, processing, engineering and investment communities. Our SolarX Works ColdBox is but one necessary piece of a complex puzzle which when applied to the equation could help us solve these challenging problems.
The core of our solution is the SolarX Works ColdBox, a container not too dissimilar conceptually from your average shipping container. Truth be told, we have even executed a retrofit of an existing shipping container with our integrated set of solutions.
The Institute of Mechanical Engineers recently stated “as the world’s population moves toward 9.5 Billion … meeting future demand for food… will present significant challenges!” Almost 50% of post-harvest perishable foods are lost due to poor infrastructure. The estimated increase in food demand over the next thirty years is 70%. We believe that the global community’s issues are our issues and that we can help be a part of the solution!
