After three years in which the cold chain has been tested beyond anyone’s lived experience, the industry comes together to reflect on what we learnt about our people, our ways of working and our resilience. Over two days delegates at Cold Chain Live! will hear from a who’s who of the food cold chain, as well as outside voices from academia, other industries and government.

DELIVERING RESILIENCE IN UNCERTAIN TIMES

From delivering the covid-19 vaccines to delivering net zero logistics, insights into the changing UK and global markets and innovative cold chain technologies, the main stage programme at Cold Chain Live! brings together experts to discuss the challenges and successes of recent times and how the cold chain is facing into the future of food chain resilience, sustainability and innovation.
