Never have I ever, in my decade and a half long career in cold chain industry; seen such volatile business micros like I have in the past three years. In 2023, personally. I prefer to see trends-current rather than current-trends as the big picture. The coming year will invariably demand from everyone, to have adaptive abilities on the go sans the privilege of preparing for the change. Rather adapting to the cold chain variables in order of their occurrence or may be not. 2023 in my opinion will most likely be a semblance of disruptive balance and order.
Mettcover Global R&D & Manufacturing Unit.
As somebody who is responsible for management of a manufacturing unit of passive cold chain packaging, we are continually adapting to the milieu of front and back-end integration and resource management whilst ensuring that innovation remains our full time job.
2023 will be the year of Sustainability (in practice)
It is only obvious that the global narrative of sustainability is going to grow in intensity. In the last couple years, cold chain industry has definitively been vocal on the Green Push and the coming year should see steps taken in practice to achieve the higher ground of sustainability. As difficult as it is, 2023 (in a paradigm shift) will see stronger green shoots to the extent of sustainable manufacturing practices, choice of raw materials and overall gradual integration of elements that will take us further away from using fossil fuels and wrong waste management practices.
