Why should you attend?

A cold chain is a temperature-controlled supply chain. An unbroken cold chain is an uninterrupted series of storage and distribution activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of products such as fresh agricultural produce, seafood, frozen food, and drugs. With the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act, cold chain companies should reevaluate their cold chain best practices.
