Cold Storage is a special kind of room, the temperature of, which is kept very low with the help of machines and precision instruments. 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.
Fruits and vegetables have a very short shelf life after harvest. In order to prevent post-harvest losses, they have to be processed immediately or stored under refrigerated conditions. The estimated annual production of fruits and vegetables in the country is about 130 million tonnes accounting to 18 per cent of our agricultural output. Moreover, the lack of cold storage and cold chain facilities are becoming major bottlenecks in tapping the vast potential.
The Indian Government focus on incentivizing the manufacturing sector is the key to growth of warehousing. With the growth of the domestic manufacturing and retail segments, the demand for efficient warehouse management service has improved. Investment in warehouse can provide an opportunity of realizing returns in the range of 12%-20% per annum to investors willing to explore this sector.
The current scenario reveals that there is a tremendous scope for the development of cold chain facilities. The Cold Chain industry is recognized as a sunrise sector in India and is expected to offer significant opportunities in the near future. Developing an integrated supply chain, including cold chain can save up to 300 billion annually and at the same time reduce the wastage of perishable horticulture produce.
