How To Start Warehouse & Cold Storage Industry
India stands on the top most pedestrian when it comes to the production of veggies and on the second where fruits are concerned. Significant vegetables developed in our country are Potato, Onion, Tomato, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Bean, Egg Plants, Cucumber, Gherkin, Peas, Garlic, and okra.
We amount to almost 15 percent of the world production of these products. We are blessed to have a very firm and adaptable processing industry. This plays an important role in diversification of the agricultural sector. The value addition opportunities are thus improved which creates a surplus for the foods produced via agriculture. As this very moment only about 2.2 percent of the fruits and vegetables are ever processed in spite of our 2nd rank in this area. As compared to other countries, we seem to be lacking in this regard. Brazil, for instance has a number of 30 percent while USA stands tall on 82 percent. Of course, our number is expected to increase by the time the 2025 rolls by. Mango is our national fruit and its production amounts to about 40 percent among the Indian fruit production. When it comes to grapes we are the leading exports in the worldwide market. The biggest factor in this regard in the changing tastes and preferences. People may like one fruit today, but would change it to a different one tomorrow. This makes the whole thing a little unpredictable. In spite of everything, the growth has been a very positive one. The fruit production has given way to various beverages and fruit juice production. Sauces, preserved goods and the works. All of this has given a completely new set of wings to the Indian fruit and vegetable production.
Our horticulture production also leads to the heavy need for cold storage, hence, giving way to another industry. Not wanting to waste the hard-produced fruits and vegetables due to environmental stimulus, the need for cold storage facilities is huge. The cost of this industry is very high but in the end it end it can also prove to be very fruitful. The prices of fruits and vegetables go up and down all the time. Storage in a cold facility will help in making the fluctuations a little easier to go through.
