Every June 26, industry trade associations around the world come together to celebrate World Refrigeration Day. This global awareness initiative has been established to highlight and celebrate the significant contributions by the refrigeration industry to the health, food and comfort of the modern international citizenry.
Moving forward, June 26 will serve as a day to raise awareness of the important improvements the industry provides towards the preservation and distribution of perishable foods and medicines, as well as the lifesaving- and comfort-cooling of people around the world.
Miriam Rodway, chief executive of the Institute of Refrigeration proclaimed: “….. World Refrigeration Day (is) an initiative to raise the profile of the important contribution that refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps make globally across so many aspects of modern life. From medical, to food supply and farming, process engineering to data and IT, refrigeration technologies are essential and yet go widely unrecognized. Bringing together the world’s community to celebrate our success and achievements is very much part of the IOR’s role to promote the advancement of refrigeration technologies, and we look forward to working more closely with everyone supporting this great campaign.”
