Gricd Frij Applications

The Gricd Frij aims at tackling cold chain problems across two broad sectors which are Agriculture & Healthcare

Agriculture

Affordable, effective cold chain solution that fights Post Harvest Losses.

AGRICULTURE

Over 85% do not have access to reliable cold chain solution. It is estimated that a quater of 1.4billion tonnes of food is lost due to lack of cold chain solutions (IoME, 2014).

HealthCare

Preservation of medical supplies and storage of vaccines during transportation

HEALTHCARE

The Frij helps in preserving the potency of vaccines by providing the right storage temperature and other medical supplies which require certain temperature levels to remain potent.

Agriculture

The Gricd Frij can be applied in crop produce storage, dairy milk storage or household food storage.

1.4Billion Tonnes of perishable food is lost annually due to the lack of cold chain solutions

1.4 Billion tonnes of food is lost annually due to the┬álack of cold chain solutions. According to FIIRO, a farmer losses between 40% – 50% of farm produce. This loss leads to price hikes and continuous price fluctuations.

Over 85% Small Holder Farmers in Nigeria don't have access to cold chain solutions

Small Holder Farmers are in Nigeria. 85% without access to cold chain solutions. Cooling and refrigeration rely on access to a reliable and affordable source of either electricity or diesel fuel which are often lacking or virtually non-existent in rural parts.

Health

In the same vein, cold chain is required in the healthcare and the dissemination of one of the worlds most innovative solitons in healthcare- vaccines. Approximately 19.4 million infants do not receive routine immunization due to inadequate cold chain facility during transportation and storage.

Even scarier is the fact that 1.5million annual deaths could have been prevented if there were adequate cold chain storage facilities.
