Together with member PPECB, the CCA recently contributed to an outline of best handling practices of perishables off the back of a trial tracking fresh raspberries from a South African farm to supermarkets in the UK.

Later in the year, the CCA will be hosting a panel session at Airfreight Pharma, taking place in Athens, Greece, from the 20th to the 22nd September.

The conference will bring together stakeholders across the Pharma industry to discuss and share insights around best handling procedures of pharmaceutical products.
