GORICA Group is proud to announce that it has successfully co-hosted the 8th Middle East Cold Chain Food Safety Conference alongside CPI Industry. The official conference was held on the 5th of April at the Meydan Hotel in Dubai where delegates came from all around the GCC and the wider Middle East Region. The conference focused on the two main links in the food chain which are transport refrigeration and cold storage warehousing.

With reference to the transport refrigeration link, our GORICA Frigo division participated in all panel discussions as well as delivered a few presentations that focused on the many vital issues that arise in refrigerated transportation of perishable goods. Some of the issues that were discussed include: the importance of the age of operating fleets in the GCC region, the need for regulation and enforcement measures, the proposal to register trailers and bodies, to carry out a spot-check monitoring system to ensure proper temperatures are maintained in the bodies and trailers while in transit as well as while loading and unloading, and more…. All of these measures would help to improve the hygiene, health and safety and overall environment and meet the high standards that especially the UAE aims for.

Furthermore, GORICA Group also hosted a soft opening event the day before the conference, at our GORICA Frigo, DIC Branch. The event enabled all participants to have a factory visit and to learn about our frigo manufacturing processes, including the materials we use and the European technology that we incorporate to make our high spec products. Overall, we are proud to have received a lot of positive feedback and to hear that our unique products has drawn a lot of attention.
