Akofresh is an eco-friendly cold chain company that provides practical and affordable preservation services to smallholder farmers to end post-harvest losses; Ghana is a pilot country. We have developed a solar-powered cooling technology that extends the shelf life of fruits and vegetables by up to 21 days.
We help farmers to sell their products at a good price and not at a cheap price. Market women are known to cheat farmers when they realize there is a bountiful harvest and farmers have no place to store the produce. In this case, we give the bargaining power to the farmers, not the buyers. If farmers know our refrigeration technology, they can get good prices for their produce and are willing to wait until a good buyer shows up.
