2019 Annual Lunch and AGM – Lord’s Cricket Ground

The 2019 AGM was another milestone in the Federation’s history, when members unanimously ratified the board’s decision to change our name to the COLD CHAIN FEDERATION to properly reflect the temperature-controlled storage and distribution industry.

Our guest speaker, Graham Gooch, having signed a Lord’s cricket shirt for the Transaid raffle, mingled with members during the drinks reception and our exhibitors enjoyed the opportunity to promote their products and services to the room.

Lights dimmed and curtains drawn, the COLD CHAIN FEDERATION brand was unveiled with a flourish by Tim Moran, Federation President and Regional Vice President of Lineage UK. Music filled the room to accompany 2 new promotional videos explaining the name change and the cold chain itself which were greeted with enthusiasm from those present, a little taster of what is to come when the Federation officially launches on 25th June at the TCS&D Show.

Our inaugural Life Members, Graham Eames, Richard Cogan and Maurice Young were presented with commemorative certificates and our Health & Safety Award winners were IBL Cold Stores, Storax and Julian Boulton from Buffaload.

The sun shone down as guests took guides tours around the ground, taking in the famous Long Room and after a delicious 3 course lunch, Graham regaled us with tales of England tours and the antics of his team mates.

A great event all round!
