The CCI-Hub is hosted in the Philippines by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)’s Green Technology Center through the Global Partnership for Improving the Food Cold Chain in the Philippines project.

According to the hub, it is designed to provide technical resources, training and knowledge sharing, as well as facilitate stakeholder collaboration.

As part of its ongoing efforts to upskill the industry, the CCI-Hub recently hosted its second face-to-face training session, which focused on CO2 technologies. Another series of in-person technical trainings is planned for January 24–26, 2023, at the CCI-Hub.
