About RD Fresh
At RD Fresh Distributing, we are proud to sell products that save our clients money, but we are even more proud that our products help save the planet. The conservation of food doesn't get alot of press, but it should! According to NREL (The Department Of Energy's principal desiccant research site), estimates that desiccant dehumidification could cut electricity demand by as much as 25%.
Why RD Fresh, Why Now?
Roughly 30 percent of food in the U.S. goes to waste, costing some $48 billion annually, according to a Stockholm Water Institute study.
The New York Times (May 18, 2008) gave a slightly more conservative, but still frightening estimate. "Americans waste an astounding amount of food - an estimated 27 percent of the food available for consumption."
