UK-funded $1 million innovation programme to strengthen Nigeria's temperature-controlled logistics supply chain

A UK government-funded Sustainable Cooling Innovation programme is seeking to strengthen Nigeria's temperature-controlled logistics supply chain through cost-effective, climate-smart technologies.

The programme will feature 11 global innovators, including 4 Nigerian companies - Tunasha, Eja-Ice, Gricd, and Mandilas Group - that will partner with 15 leading Nigerian companies from the agriculture, food and beverage, retail, refrigeration, engineering, and logistics sectors, including Fan Milk and JustFood.

Backed by IFC’s TechEmerge and African logistics platform, Kobo360, the programme will also provide advisory support to help innovators mitigate financial and operational risks, reduce adoption risks for local firms, and facilitate market-entry and tech transfer.
