Overview

Solar Freeze aims to help the estimated 500 million smallholder farmers in developing countries who lose an average of 50 percent of their perishable produce even before the crops leave the farm. Temperature control is the most important factor in reducing post harvest food losses for fresh produce but the cold storage chain is virtually nonexistent due to the high cost of equipment and spotty electricity. Solar Freeze provides farmers with portable solar powered cold storage units that they can access through mobile phones via simple SMS and USSD messages to book and store perishable produce using the sharing economy and pay with mobile money.
