Cold Chain Federation provides a unique, non-competitive space where temperature-controlled storage and distribution businesses (and those that supply, advise or regulate them) can come together to meet online or in person, learn, problem-solve and be inspired together.
We have an exciting series of online events with lots of opportunities for members to get involved with, showcase products and learn about the topics that matter to the cold chain.
There are opportunities for associate members to get involved in all of our sessions, so please get in touch with the team to find out how.
