Boston, USA / Pune, India: Food Logistics, the publication exclusively dedicated to covering the movement of product through the global food supply chain, has named Promethean Power Systems to the Top Green Providers list for 2020 in the Alternative Fuels category.

Food Logistics’ annual Top Green Providers recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership is enhancing sustainability within the food and beverage industry. Each year, the criteria for earning a spot on the list become more stringent for applicants. For example, the editorial staff evaluates a company’s participation in such programs as the EPA’s SmartWay and other recognized sustainability programs; facilities that are LEED-certified, and/or feature solar panels, LED lighting and other energy-saving installations and retrofits that produce measurable reductions in GHG emissions, to name a few. 

“Promethean is honoured to receive this coveted award for our sustainable and energy-efficient cold storage and refrigerated transport solutions powered by our patented thermal energy storage system that eliminates the use of diesel for cooling.  Our cooling systems have been fully operational during Covid-19 and have enabled food companies and thousands of farmers to reliably preserve and transport produce,” said Jiten Ghelani, CEO Promethean Power Systems.  “We are committed to reducing global food loss with innovative, environmentally-friendly and cost-effective technology and solutions. Through our suite of cold storage solutions, we are enabling a more sustainable and inclusive cold chain from farm to fork in India and worldwide. Our new line of energy-efficient refrigerated trucks eliminate the use of diesel for cooling and significantly reduce carbon footprint.”

“Our annual Top Green Providers award recognizes companies whose products, services, or exemplary leadership enhance sustainability within the food and beverage industry. From technology that reduces a fleet’s carbon footprint to software that helps shippers drive energy efficiency to systems and processes that help reduce the carbon and environmental impact of its customers’ supply chains, these top green providers continue to practice the ultimate in sustainability year over year,” says Marina Mayer, Editor-in-Chief of Food Logistics.
