World Refrigeration Day to Recognize Cold Chain: The theme chosen for World Refrigeration Day (26th June) in 2020 celebrates the importance of the food cold chain in sustaining life. The cold chain links producers and growers across the world to the domestic refrigerator in our kitchens, and it is essential for so much more than food. Vaccines must remain chilled until they are used by medical professionals around the world, and the cold chain is essential for blood transfusions and organ donor transport and storage. www.worldrefrigerationday.org
