Brazil’s Annual Cold Chain Day

Sao Paulo, Brazil

In July, ISPE Brazil Affiliate held its’ 8th annual Brazilian Cold Chain Day, immersing attendees in the study of good pharmaceutical practices related to temperature control logistics. More than 50 professionals from different areas and companies in Brazil and abroad learned and shared knowledge, experience, and best practices in the market, while enjoying an outstanding networking opportunity.

The cold chain market in Brazil controls more than $3 billion USD/year in imports and exports. In addition to a growing challenge in compliance requirements throughout Latin America, the need for continuous training and enhancement of the various individuals that contribute to this vital aspect of the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain ensure the success of this event, year after year.

Cold Chain Day instructors, each of which is a member of the ISPE Brazil Affiliate, included:

  • Ricardo Miranda, RM Consulting
  • Liana Montemor, Grupo Polar
  • Alexandre Dantas Vale, World Courier
  • Fausto Bartolo, Novo Nordisk
