Event Details

The UK’s Science and Innovation team, Department for International Trade and the University of Birmingham with support from India’s National Centre for Cold Chain Development, are hosting a workshop to bring together a cross section of stakeholders including cold chain operators and end-users, clean cold technology developers and potential manufacturers and financiers, government officials and NGOs.

The objective is to enable innovative cooling businesses and Indian Government and organisations to define the approaches that will work in India, create a roadmap for rapid deployment, and forge new international partnerships for technology trial and demonstration. This workshop is highly relevant for all aspects of the cold chain, its operators and users – e.g. pack house cooling, rail and road logistics, blast freezing and cold stores as well as retail chilled store and display and packaging.

The current and projected demand, the novel business models and regulatory environment needed to facilitate deployment, and an accelerated route to in-country manufacture will be assessed. This will create a launching pad for high impact partnerships that will help deliver Prime Minister Modi’s vision both to double farmers’ income sustainably and “Make in India”.
