While the world produces enough food to feed 10 billion people, one-third or more of it is wasted every year, resulting in more than 800 million people going hungry every day. Food waste also results in a carbon footprint of 4.4 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions. To help overcome this global challenge and feed a growing planet, Carrier is leading the way in research and technologies that create a stronger, smarter and more connected cold chain.
Expanding the Cold Chain
To solve any challenge, you have to know what you’re up against. Through a commitment to research, we gain a greater understanding of the causes, effects and overall impact of food waste. And most importantly, we’re able to better identify opportunities to improve the cold chain.
