Due to the lack of cold chains, much of the harvest in sub-Saharan Africa cannot be stored for long, resulting in valuable food spoiling in the sun everyday. Severe climate change makes conditions for farmers even more difficult.
This mobile and self-contained cold store provides farmers with cold storage for their crops so that they don’t spoil. The food is kept fresh until it is sold, thus creating significant added value for the community.
They are usually highly dependent on middlemen who sell their goods in the next larger city. Unfortunately, the charges imposed by distribution networks often make it very difficult to operate agriculture sustainably.
While stored in the Cooltainer, the food can be offered for sale directly on an E-commerce platform. It can be delivered to the customers at regular intervals, allowing for direct distribution with higher margins for the farmers.
Our mobile cold store is equipped with a 5 kWp photovoltaic system, which operates completely independently and can withstand the harsh conditions of off-grid regions in Africa. With its proven 20-foot container design, the Cooltainer is ideal for all standard transport solutions.
