Description

IIR Seminar on the "Logistics For Transport Of Foodstuffs Under Controlled Temperatures In Hot Countries” October 25-26, 2016, in Tunis, Tunisia

The IIR makes its mark in the Transport Of Foodstuffs Under Controlled Temperatures In Hot Countries

We are delighted to invite you to the IIR Seminar on the "Logistics For Transport Of Foodstuffs Under Controlled Temperatures In Hot Countries” and an IIR Working Group meeting on The Cold Chain in Hot Countries

In hot countries, where microbial growth is faster as a result of high temperatures, the use of refrigeration must be regarded as essential.

Around 80% of the world’s population lives in developing countries (the majority of these countries have a hot climate: equatorial, tropical or Mediterranean) and it is estimated that 50% of the population of these countries live in towns with increasingly severe food supply problems as they are still without refrigeration.

However, in hot developing countries, the emphasis is put on an increase in agricultural production and they are very little inclined to refrigerate agricultural products. This is the reason why post-production losses are considerable, whether in the field, during transportation, in storage or during distribution. These losses can be defined as "a decrease in food quantity or quality".
