Global Cold Chain Alliance – COVID-19 Cold Chain Business Impact Survey

The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) conducted a survey between April 28th and May 11th 2020 to understand the impacts
of the pandemic on the cold chain. They had 170 responses from across the world, including the UK. Respondents
were predominantly from cold storage operations, however responses from transportation companies and
suppliers were also received. This note summarises the key findings from European businesses.
