Cold Chains

A cold chain is temperature-controlled supply chain that offers uninterrupted series of storage & distribution activities that maintains a given temperature range. It is also used to help as well as ensure shelf life of products like Fresh agricultural produce, frozen food, chemicals, pharmaceutical drugs and others. The use of cold chains is also common in Food and Pharmaceutical industries as well as some chemical shipments. We also hold expertise in providing concepts & designs for plants & packages and install the equipment to conditions at construction sites & issue drawings and specifications.

 

Why The Requirement?

India ranks first in world in production of fruits & second in vegetables that accounts roughly 10 and 15 per cent, respectively of total global production. India also has strong & dynamic food processing sector that plays vital role in diversifying agricultural sector, improving value addition opportunities as well as in creating surplus food for agro-food products.

 

But nearly one third of horticultural produce, especially fruits & vegetables are wasted on account of poor cold storage & other storage facilities. The wastage of fruits & vegetables is also due to poor post-harvest management as well as lack of cold chain facilities have is estimated to cost up to Rs 500 billion annually.

 
Government Initiatives

Government also provides incentives to build cold-storage facilities, cut food wastage as well as smooth supply chain in world's second biggest producer of fruits and vegetables. With view to ensure faster development of cold storage capacity as well as to encourage entrepreneurs to invest more in this sector, government has announced new credit-linked capital subsidy scheme for construction of cold storage and godowns.

 

This scheme is implemented by NABARD/NCDC/NHB where National Horticulture Board provides capital subsidy to entrepreneurs for construction, expansion as well as modernization of cold storage for horticulture products. This scheme also promotes setting up of cold storage in country for reducing post harvest losses.

 

  • A subsidy of 25% of the project cost subject to maximum of Rs.50 lakh per project can be availed under this scheme
  • For projects in the North Eastern States, maximum subsidy admissible is Rs.60 lakh @ 33.33% of project costs


These government schemes will help in attracting new investments in the sector. This move is also good decision for agriculture sector that is struggling with food wastage problems. With present limited Cold storage facilities, the focus is on recent upcoming budget on bringing more investments in the warehousing and cold storage sector.
