Luxembourg, Tuesday 6th July 2021The Cool Chain Association (CCA) has launched a newly-established Technical Committee and welcomed five new members.

The Committee’s aim is to assist, analyse, study, and manage critical points affecting product quality along the cool chain, as well as developing standards, and initiating projects.

It will include CCA members who are not Board members and have volunteered to become Project Coordinators, responsible for the facilitation of initiatives and the proposal of final solutions to the Board.

“The Committee itself is open only to CCA members, but we welcome any suggestions for projects that will progress the ambition of the Association to reduce waste and loss and improve the quality, efficiency, and value of the cool supply chain,” said Nicola Caristo, Secretary General, CCA and Airline Partner Manager, SkyCell AG.

“It will allow the CCA to concentrate its efforts and resources on specific topics and projects, whilst showcasing the benefits of joining the Association to cool chain companies through white papers and proof of concept.”

The Committee was launched at the recent Annual General Meeting (AGM), during which former CCA Secretary General Edwin Kalischnig, Chief Executive Officer, Xtreme Technologies, was made an honorary Board member.

The five new CCA members include Qatar Cargo, 7P Solutions, FreshBizDev, SmartCAE, and AirCargo Consultancy Global.

CCA is planning its Cool Chain Association Perishables Conference 2021 in partnership with

The Perishables Products Export Control Board (PPECB), which will take place virtually in September.

Details and an agenda will be released shortly.
