ColdHubs, was part of the GAIN PLAN’s consultative workshop in Lagos on May 18th to explore the models, trade-offs and incentives for lending, leasing and owning returnable plastic crates (RPCs) along the fruits and vegetables supply chain.
The workshop in collaboration with Rockefeller Foundation Yieldwise Program-Pyxera Global and GEMS4-UKAID and Nigeria Agribusiness Group (NABG), the Lakaji Development Association (LDA) engaged representatives of FFV farmers/farmer associations, raffia basket sellers/dealers, FFVs aggregation centres/operators, transporters, cold chain logistics/warehousing operators, Federal and States Ministries of Agriculture, RPC manufacturers, banks and finance experts, insurance experts and the market/trade associations.
ColdHubs made a presentation at the workshop, educating participants on our unique business model “pay as you store, per crate”. The presentation was well received and sparked renewed interest in the ColdHubs technology.
