Mark Barnekow, CEO of Global Fresh Foods, spends his days examining how we as a society can change the way we ship our food, particularly our seafood, which currently utilizes resource-intensive air-freight network that is costly to consumers and to Mother Earth. Global Fresh Foods uses a fuel-cell technology that preserves freshness and allows for slower shipping via sea freight — slowed to anywhere from 15 to 50 days without sacrificing quality. “Air freight is 99% more CO2 emitting than sea freight,” Barnekow reveals. “Whenever seafood is shipped in using air freight, it is polluting the environment in a very big way. People don’t know that their products come in Styrofoam. There is a lot of Styrofoam going into landfills as a result of the supply chain. Our system uses absolutely no Styrofoam.”
