A Cincinnati invention will soon be on its way to India following months of marketing and development.

The product, still in the testing stages, is a 10-foot-long cold storage shed, something badly needed in India where nearly 40 percent of crops spoil before they get to market.

University of Cincinnati business professor Ilsa Hawkins and her students recognized a need for cold storage. They went to Mumbai (Ice Expo) with a brochure and a business plan.
