New Delhi-On this World Refrigeration Day, ISHRAE with Institute of Refrigeration (UK) and National Centre for Cold Chain Development aims to highlight the importance of refrigeration in the modern society. Together they will be raising awareness about ‘refrigeration’ which in its widest sense, is the process of achieving and maintaining a required temperature below that of its surrounding area.

In a country like India where 4 out of every 10 children are unable to meet their full human potential due to poor food security, the use of refrigeration – that includes preservation and distribution of perishable food items, lifesaving drugs and vaccines – needs focused attention. In order to bring about this change, ISHRAE along with the IoR – UK, NCCD and other stakeholders will highlight innovation, efficiency and standards for the refrigeration industry on World Refrigeration Day. A follow up exhibition cum conference called RefCold will be held in Hyderabad from 21st to 23rd November 2019.

On the occasion of World Refrigeration Day, a webinar is being organized on 26th June with participation from ISHRAE, IoR, NCCD and CEPT. The discussion about refrigeration and its importance together with its technical aspects would be addressed by a galaxy of speakers which includes Mr. C. Subramaniam (Immediate Past President of ISHRAE).
