Specttrum News: After the successful editions since 2009 in cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Agra and Ahmedabad, the 7th edition of ‘India Cold-chain Expo - ICE 2015’ was recently held at Chandigarh. The two-day event was the only one in India where the entire community of Cold Chain came together to be part of the process of defining the future of this industry.

ICE has been effectively acting as a medium to dissipate latest technologies, best practices and governing policies in the cold chain sector and has productively brought together the buyers, suppliers and all stakeholders.

It is an amalgamation of exhibition, conference, awards and networking dinner. It is a unique networking opportunity for decision makers, opinion leaders and the entire cold chain fraternity. 

The chief guest at the event Pawanesh Kohli, Chief Advisor & CEO, National Centre for Cold Chain Development (NCCD) said, “Today we stand here at the 7th edition of ICE which over the years has become the central stage of knowledge dissemination of the cold chain sector. NCCD takes the lead role in cold-chain development processes by providing guidance on policy matters and undertakes knowledge dissemination for ongoing demand driven activities.”

Special guest Todd P. Haymore, Secretary of Agriculture & Forestry, Virginia Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, said, “30% of the food produced in India is wasted because of lack of Cold Chains. So, development of the Cold Chain Industry is significant to avoid such wastage.”

ICE-2015 featured 3,000 visitors from 20 countries and 50 exhibitors showcasing 200+ brands.
