Indian cold chain industry is seen as an emerging and fast growing business sector. Considering the current levels of food wasted, cold chain facilities will play an important role in feeding the nation. Understanding the increasing demand for an effective cold chain, the government has taken many positive steps by introducing preferable schemes and policies. However, lots need to be done in order to drive the overall goal of the industry. In order to develop a world-class cold chain infrastructure, the government needs to adopt better and more effective policies to bring commensurate economic returns to the stakeholders involved in this sector.

ICC Cold Chain summit 2014 will give special attention to India’s North East region. It is undebateble that NER has a comparative advantage in producing fruits, vegetables and other horticulture products which has enough potential for Agri business and Cold Chain Market. Market analysis of North East shows that pack houses, collection centers linked to market based cold storages are required. There is a good opportunity for some high value fruits like passion fruit, Kiwi & Strawberry. Thereby, presenting a great opportunity to explore and invest more in this sector.
