A third of the world’s food spoils in transit and never reaches the table — food that could feed more than the 870 million people on Earth who don't get enough to eat. Improved refrigeration and transportation of perishable foods through a better integrated “cold chain” could combat world hunger and mitigate climate change without the need to grow more food to feed an increasing population.
