Content Headlines on CD ROM

  • Freezing is a quick, convenient, and popular way to preserve fruits and vegetables. Freezing is not usually as economical as canning, but it preserves more nutrients in the food if properly done.
  • Cold storage of fruits and vegetables was used extensively by our ancestors to keep food after the harvest season.
  • There are two process freezing techniques - contact freezing and air blast freezing.
  • The cooling process is one of the most important steps in the chain that brings fruits and vegetables from the farm to the table.
  • Built-in-place cold storage can be constructed out of wood pole and post, steel and/or concrete block.
    The construction cost will depend on labor cost and on the type of materials used for the frame, walls, floor, ceiling and insulation.
  • The grower has the following options for cold storage facilities: Built-in-place cold storage, Adapted cold storage, Prefabricated cold storage.
    Out of this the smaller capacity storages at Hotels, Restaurants, airports, etc. account for about 2/3rds and 1/3rd for large cold storages ranging from 1000 tons to 10,000 tons of product.
  • India is one of the world’s largest producers of fruits and vegetables but nearly 30 percent of this production is lost due to inadequate cold chain facilities.
  • With a long coastline of 3650 miles, the Indian marine product
    industry is growing rapidly, but large quantities of marine products are wasted because of lack of storage facilities.
  • Other food segments like dairy products, and processed meat, also require cold storage
    facilities.
  • Realizing the urgent need for cold storage facility, the Government of India have accorded high priority for this segment.
  • India’s existing food cold storage facilities can accommodate 21.7m tons of produce compared with a requirement for more than 31m tons
    A shortfall of 10m tons of cold storage facilities for agriculture produce is holding back Indian food industry including its rapidly developing food processing sector
  • The cold storage facilities now available are mostly for a single commodity like potato, orange, apple, grapes, pomegranates, flowers, etc. which results in poor capacity utilization.
  • Government Support for cold storage plants are available in the form of subsidies, consultancy services - to help linking farmers to market & to avoid heavy losses & wastes of food products
  • Banks usually encourage cold storages where 70% of the capacity is available to farmers for storage on rentals.
  • Financial viability of a unit depends upon the intended pattern of use and rental rate prevalent in an area. However, units entirely to be used by the owners are also considered for sanction. Considering 70:30 utilization of the capacity for rentals and own use, a 5000 MT capacity unit is considered
  • A large number of cold storages have come up with heavy subsidies, loans and help from the cooperatives and the Government. The old ones have been revamped, generators added to take care of power cuts and the availability of foods by storages / cold storages / CA and MA storages are on the increase.
  • Reliable Refrigeration machinery and plants are indigenously manufactured and expertise developed which is also playing a leading role in the export of fruits / vegetables / meat / flowers etc. as well.
  • There is big development in the retail sector in India.
  • Each Retailer is supposed to have their own cold chains across the country making the cost of organized retailing costly
  • Individual business ventures to cater to the retail sector is therefore very promising in the absence of national cold chain of network
