A strategy needs to be carved out

India faces an acute problem of large Biscuit Machine Suppliers amounts of food wasted away due to the lack of a proper cold storage, cold chain and frozen food distribution system.

However, if one had to point out at one single single reason as to why Hard Candy Machine Wholesalers the Indian agricultural industry is such a laggard when pitted against the global standards, it could be the pathetic state of the logistics, distribution and and an inefficient supply chain. What is Cold Chain? A cold chain is basically a logistics system, which helps in maintaining and providing a series of facilities for ensuring ideal storage conditions for the persihables from the point of origin to the point of sale.

A well developed and efficiently organized cold chain reduces wastage, spoilage and helps keeps the perishables intact thereby helping to maintain the quality of the harvested food products ultimately making the whole system cost effective to the farmers and that which ensures top-notch quality to the end user.India has tremendous potential to become the primary source of agricultural products, more specifically food products in the world. It has about 53% of arable land - land available for cultivation of crops as compared to a measly average of about 11% for the rest of the world.

A strategy needs to be carved out for the growth of this industry and a lot of investment action is yet to see some real action. If there were cold storage systems, efficient cold chain, logistics and distribution companies, it could have been possible to process these primary products into newer, secondary products and resold to consumers locally and internationally. If only this was in place, huge amounts of food could have been processed into some kind of value added foods and sold both locally and abroad.

Investment in cold storage, cold chain distribution, installation of food processing plants across the country, applied research on harvesting technologies an a rapid development of the food retail industry are all necessary steps that would ensure an organic growth in this sector. With large tracts of arable land, inexpensive labour and high-quality produce tumbling out of the barns, there is a potential so huge that sometimes, the scope and scale is almost unbelievable.
