InspiraFarms tap into West Africa to curb Post Harvest Losses
InspiraFarms conducted a 10-day visit to various West African countries to consolidate partnerships and build business relationships in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin and Togo.
Many West African countries represent an enormous opportunity for the growth of the cold chain and the integration of post-harvest loss management solutions.
InspiraFarms core solutions enable business, farmers and Governments to reduce Post Harvest Losses, increase fresh fruit and vegetables shelf life, while managing OPEX with energy-efficient technologies and have more transparency of cold chain through embedded Internet of Things (IoT).
With the recent partnership with Freezelink, Ghanaian cold chain logistics operator and engineering service provider, InspiraFarms is expanding in West African Markets with its best-in-class and next-generation cold chain and food handling technology, offering cooling solutions, cloud-based data solutions and asset finance.
InspiraFarms visit to Benin aimed at preparing the commissioning of a precooling, packing and tarmac-side refrigerated terminal at Cotonou Airport, that will support the Country in increasing export revenues, reopening trade routes and managing cold chain risks.
