Current Scenario in Cold Chain Business in India

In India we have been associated with number of Projects which are part of partial Cold Chains. In fact, we have experience of construction of all the important sections of Cold Chain but unfortunately in India there is not a single example of a complete Cold Chain.

Cold Chain Present Status in India can be described as below,

  • Large numbers of obsolete cold storages - There is no correlation between growing areas and cold storage locations, India has almost 20m tons of cold storage capacity, over 80% dedicated to potato
  • Little or no pre cooling
  • Limited reefer transport - Large logistics providers like Crystal Roadways & Radhakrishna Food Land have less than 100 reefers
  • Limited number of Refrigerated Distribution Centers

After entry of number of big Corporate Houses in Retail business, we had great expectations that presence of these Corporate Houses will initiate complete Cold Chain activities on PAN India basis. Unfortunately, nothing has happened for last two years may be because of change in thinking process of these Corporate Houses to sell the perishables at minimum price. Unawareness of consumers like hygiene and condition of the perishables is also other reason to restrict growth of Cold Chains in India. Apart from above following are other reasons of non viability of cold chains,

  • Cold Chain adoption in India is product centric and fragmented
  • Since most small and medium sized farmers need cash soon after harvest, they evacuate their produce to the nearest mandi immediately to try and reduce product risk, obviating the need for cold storing
  • Non-availability of quality and reliable power in rural areas. Power outages necessitate the use of generators which makes cold storing financially unviable
  • Farmers know about cold storing, but most are unaware of the benefits of pre-cooling and reefer transport
  • High capital costs compounded by high instance of excise / customs duty on equipment
  • Existing capital subsidy schemes of the government are not adequate
  • Significant expenditure on power
  • Low utilization on account of lack of awareness and seasonality
  • Not enough quality human capital to manage the cold chain
  • No cadre of post harvest managers who can provide know how on treatment and handling of various F&V produce

This is however changing with the advent of major retail chains like Reliance, Bharti, Godrej, ITC, Future Group, AV Birla Retail who are demanding quality produce. Foreign players like Wal-Mart, Carrefour, etc, are waiting in the side liners.


Market Potential for LII
The total production of storable fruits in cold stores in India is around 9 million ton and storable vegetables are around 42.5 million tons. Around 35% of the storable produce (18 million ton) is consumed in fresh form during harvest season. Remaining 65% i.e. 33.5 million ton needs storage capacity out of which present cold store capacity in the country is around 20.5 million ton. Hence the gap of 13 million ton needs to be created. Production of F & V in the year 2011 is going to be double which would require creation of additional cold storage capacity. In terms of numbers presently 5500 cold storages are existing and 9000 more are required to cope up this demand.

The government agencies like National Horticulture Board and State Agricultural Produce Marketing Boards are promoting various Cold Chain Projects in India to decrease the unnecessary wastage of F & V products which is around 35-40% of the total production with value of Rs.50000/- crores. These Boards constantly promoting export of various fruits, vegetables and flowers with necessary inputs to the India farmers.

In coming years Modern format retailing may require distributed sourcing, centralized holding and dispatch followed by de-centralised sales. In this case, Cold Chains will become inherent part of retailing for maintaining the quality of the produce through this process. With growth rates of 25-30% organized retail in India looks extremely promising and is already outpacing to non-organised sector which is growing at around 8%.

The export of F & V products calls for long distance moment of perishables along with long term storage. This factor will again help to increase the number of Cold Chains in India.

Export, Processing and Retail are exerting a strong demand pull on Cold Chain Infra-structure and the pull will aggravate in future.

As stated earlier, LII has already set up a Post Harvest Management Department to tap maximum share of opportunities available in Cold Chain sector during forth coming years. We strongly believe in providing total solutions to customer under one roof with detailed technical back up which helps us in turn to develop long lasting relation and repeat business. To cope up with future demands of Cold Chain Industry, we have already amended our manufacturing facility by doubling the capacity and have short-listed appropriate team members who will provide us necessary system integration backups.

The existing contracting capability and vast experience in executing complex contracts will definitely compliment our above preparations to fulfill demands of this industry.
