From Mexico, to Burkina Faso, to Australia, the world’s first Refrigeration Day takes place today, June 26. The International Institute of Refrigeration — Europe’s independent intergovernmental science and technology based organization which promotes knowledge of refrigeration — spearheaded the development of the first World Refrigeration Day.
