Jeff Newell, Agri EVP participated in and commissioned our New Cold Chain facility in Mumbai, India. The occasion was hosted by Paul House, MD India and his management team in Mumbai.

This facility is the only one of its kind in India addressing food safety compliance in the fresh produce supply chain. Almost 50% of the facility is already contracted by customers and our team in India is expecting to fill up the capacity within a year. The facility is equipped to offer services including ripening, sorting and grading as well as safe storage at different temperature zones, all coupled with our traditional services of inspection and testing.

This innovation gives SGS a unique competitive advantage in the Indian Market.
