India has a rich tradition in terms of spices, flavours and cuisines, the food & beverage sector in the country is mired by inherent problems such as lack of adequate storage infrastructure and other facilities to meet the gigantic needs of its vast populace.
In fact, if one takes a look at the lack of adequate storage infrastructure for fruits and vegetables in the country, it pinpoints at wastage and value loss of approximately Rs 33,000 crore every year. However, to support the growing horticulture and food services industry, the ministry concerned aims to have 45 lakh tonnes of cold storage capacity and over 3,000 reefer trucks for domestic transportation of fresh produce by 2012.
It is for the faster growth of the cold chain industry that the Ministry of Food Processing Industry (MoFPI) has announced an Integrated Cold Chain Scheme. The integrated cold chain will enable excellent infrastructure facilities for cold chain, value addition and the preservation industry along the supply chain from ‘the farm to market’ by employing a cluster-based approach. To do this, the government has offered a 50% subsidy of up to Rs 10 crore for project development. Individuals or groups of entrepreneurs with business interests in cold chain, supply chain, warehousing and logistics can benefit from this.
