Blog: Reducing Fruit and Vegetable Losses with Clay Pot Coolers: An Ancient Technology

Updated: Sep 27, 2023

CoolVeg Founder, Eric Verploegen published a blog in USAID's Agrilinks about clay pot coolers ahead of the International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste titled: Reducing Fruit and Vegetable Losses with Clay Pot Coolers: An Ancient Technology for the Current Moment


The blog highlights three reasons why clay pot coolers should be deployed alongside efforts for increased electrification:


1) Clay pot coolers can be rapidly deployed to help right now

2) Clay pot coolers are more cost-effective than electric refrigerators for fruit and vegetable storage

3) Clay pot coolers are easy to make, easy to understand and affordable — and can empower communities
