This week on our From the Cold Corner podcast, I interviewed Lowell Randel, VP of government and legal affairs at the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) for the very latest developments regarding COVID-19's impact on the cold food supply chain.

Randel gave us a cold chain update last week in a story you can read here, but we wanted to expand that conversation to dive deeper into what adjustments the industry is making in response to crushing demand for retail refrigerated and frozen foods, plus what innovations have been developed to move inventory faster, and help protect truck drivers in the current social distancing climate. You can also hear how the GCCA and the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States partnered to quickly create and distribute hand sanitizer to those that need it.

For all that and more, just click here to listen. Also, if you have any feedback, please feel free to post a comment below, or contact me via email at

Finally, we've compiled all of Refrigerated & Frozen Foods' coronavirus coverage into one easy-to-access link here, where you can see what dozens of cold chain companies and F&B processors are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
