Pakstani fishers

A staggering 40 percent of the food produced in the developing world spoils or is thrown away before reaching consumers; it’s a level of waste that harms the incomes of farmers and the good health of people who miss out on the nutritional benefits of fresh food. Cold chains — which are temperature-controlled supply chains — help reduce waste by ensuring that produce, fish and meat arrive at the market fresh and attractive to shoppers. Winrock helps establish cold chains by facilitating the financing and transfer of necessary storage and transport technologies, and by training those who will use them.
