Life Sustaining Cold Storage For Those In Need


Less than 10 per cent of all perishable foods is estimated to be refrigerated, even though  post-harvest losses add up to 30 per cent of food production worldwide.

Innovation  with decentralized renewable energy (DRE) is essential in Africa and Asia because  access and connection to electricity in rural areas, where food is produced, is still poor . Solar energy is harnessed to run these machines.

These units can be used by governments, farmers, military and humanitarian workers.
