How To Start Controlled Atmosphere-CA Cold Storage Business

To better understand the CA cold storage business you need to read this complete my blog. INDIA is an agricultural country, it means in our country the production and productivity of fruits, vegetables and grains are done in a very large amount. but, its good that we have the largest production but because of less market demand, these things get bad, and if we talk about many crore tons of fruits and vegetables get rotten in the market itself, because there is not much demand in the market due to this the economy also gets down, all these have a very simple and good solution which is cold storage.

You will be surprised to know that, in our country, we need approx. 6.1 crore metric ton food storage capacity in which we are fulfilling only 2.9 crore metric ton storage capacity. it means if anyone wants to do this business they can earn a good amount of profit.

Types of Products can storage

we have seen in our country, because of the weather, fruits and vegetables get rotten. the big reason behind this problem is, not keeping well with fruits and vegetables. The shocking thing is, the inflation in our country is because of this only, but now people are getting aware, people are using cold storage and CA chambers very well so that at the right time and with market demand they can supply this. CA chambers are the place where fruits, vegetables, meat, etc, are kept at a controlled temperature. Our cold storage is built especially keeping in mind for fruits and vegetables, mostly highly perishable products we call them, like Apples, Plums, Kiwi, Grapes, Oranges, and vegetables like leafy vegetables, Potato, Carrot so, to support fresh fruit business, you have to be a good trader apart from that you will need multiple cold stores, pre-cooling centers near farm gate, there you will need sorting and grading line, you will need a storage facility in cities, and to run all these businesses you have to maintain a cold chain. Ice cream is such a product in which if you will not maintain the temperature, it will melt down, any household like you and me will look it and say that this product is bad and not good for consumption same ways fruit is also that much sensitive product, provided, the fruit doesn’t chance its face very quickly, its seems that the fruit is fine, but from inside it is slowly daily getting rotten, which we can’t see, and till the time it reaches our home, its face, taste, and flavor gets changed a bit so the consumer doesn’t  get happy after consuming it, and the same product if anyone buys from the market directly, or from a good source, then its fresher and crunchier, less handling means fewer germs and bacteria in it, this gives a big difference, so to support this business most importantly, you need to maintain a cold chain,
