Firms strategise against agric’s post-harvest losses



A Global chemical company, BASF, has demonstrated its commitment towards solving the perennial challenge of agricultural post-harvest losses, as it partners Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), towards its Cold Chain Mapping Project currently underway in Nigeria.

The study is aimed at identifying the current cold storage capacity of Nigeria in both frozen and ambient temperature segments.

The mapping outcomes will provide information that can be utilized to stimulate private sector investments for infrastructure and much needed financial services, as well as education and public awareness of the status of the sector.

The results will also inform the cold chain stakeholders’ dialogue and coordination necessary for effective cold chain development.

Speaking on the partnership, the Managing Director, BASF West Africa, Dr. Jean-Marc Ricca said: “Within the Cold Chain, BASF, as the leading provider of polyurethane insulation solutions globally for more than 150 years, is the right partner to help develop the Cold Chain of Nigeria. Our three innovative and energy-efficient polyurethane insulation materials for the cold chain have contributed to food preservation globally.

“As an organization that invests in Research and Development, we will continue to challenge conventional packaging for a sustainable future.”
