Webinar on Cold Chain- Technologies, Convergence and Capacity Building

Webinar on Cold Chain- Technologies, Convergence and Capacity Building will be organized by ASSOCHAM with Indigram Labs Foundation as an associate partner on 17 June 2021 in virtual mode.

The cold chain industry is seen as an emerging and fast-growing business sector in India. Considering the current issue of food shortage and food security in India, cold chain facilities will play an important role in the country. According to the Food and Agriculture organization (FAO) of the UN, approximately one third of the food produced for human consumption, which amounts to 1.3 billion tones, gets lost or wasted. However, this sector has seen a considerable growth in the last decade and is expected to have further improvement in growth rate in the years to come.

Indian cold chain is developing and still at a nascent stage. Although, there is large production of perishables but still the cold chain potential remains untapped due to multiple reasons like high share of single commodity cold storage; high initial investment required (for refrigerator units and land); lack of basic enabling Infrastructure (roads, water supply, power supply, drainage, etc, lack of awareness for handling perishable produce and lapse of service either by the storage provider or the transporter leading to poor quality produce.
