What is the Cold Chain Council?

Cold Chain Council began three years ago to gather top talent from all phases of the cold chain – including manufacturers, retail, distribution, and logistics partners – to share their perspectives on existing challenges and best practices. An intimate afternoon of networking and expert panel discussion was created as a non-conference and thought leadership event.

The goal of the Cold Chain Council is to present and discuss topics from different cold chain segments within the global supply chain for the pharma, chemical, food, and beverage industries. Traditionally, two annual events are hosted in-person in Chicago, Illinois: one for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, and one for the food and beverage industries. Due to COVID19, Cold Chain Council has incorporated a series of webinars throughout the year to ensure thought leadership with industry leaders continues, as collaboration and education are extremely important during times like these.
