Coldbox Store Reduces Food Waste in Nigeria

Coldbox Store Reduces Food Waste in Nigeria

The Nigerian solar-powered system aims to reduce food waste and its climate footprint by reducing post-food harvest losses Food waste is a significant driver in climate change, as 6% of all global greenhouse emissions come from the production of food that is never eaten. This creates a vicious cycle of more extreme climate, which makes food production more difficult and exacerbates poverty, malnutrition and inequality across society.
