SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zest Labs, an AgTech company modernizing the post-harvest fresh food supply chain, today announced that it will participate in a webinar hosted by Food Logistics. Zest Labs CEO, Peter Mehring, will join a panel of experts to discuss cold chain strategies and how growers, shippers, distributors and retail grocers can significantly reduce fresh food waste and improve operational efficiency and product margins through cold chain optimization. Zest Labs is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ecoark Holdings, Inc. (OTCQX: ZEST), to be renamed Zest Technologies, Inc.
The integrated global cold chain requires the seamless movement of products and data from harvest or processing to the retail shelf, but there are still significant industry challenges – such as lack of visibility into the shipping and handling of perishable products – that need to be addressed if stakeholders are going to be successful. Mehring will join the Food Logistics webinar to explore how the right investments and innovations in technology, such as IoT sensors, predictive analytics and blockchain can positively impact the global cold chain, including improving food quality and safety, and reducing food waste.
Webinar attendees will learn:
- The impact of industry shortcomings on cold chain stakeholders and how can they be addressed
- What investments and innovations have the most potential to impact the cold chain, including IoT, blockchain, pallet-level condition monitoring and more
- How improvements in the global cold chain can deliver higher-quality perishable products to consumers and increase product margins by 6% or more
