Bhutan produces a massive number of vegetables and fruits throughout the year. Unfortunately, a huge number of fruits and vegetables go to waste due to the lack of Cold Storage Business in Bhutan.

Bhutan has a lack of storing capacity or is not able to command a premium in the export market owing to poor packing house processing facilities. A significant number of imports happen during the lean season. It has been proposed that the unit will have a capacity of processing 50MT of fruits and vegetables in a day. It would also have a storage capacity of 100 MT. This will also be able to curb wastage, reduce the import of fruits and vegetables and give a fillip to exports.

If you are from Thimphu and want to start a Cold Storage Business in Bhutan, this is the right time. If you have no idea about this business, let us know everything about it.

About an Industrial Cold Storage Business in Bhutan:

In a Cold Storage Business in Bhutan, you need to set up an industrial cold room which has a large cold room in which perishable food such as meat, fish, or fruit can be stored to maintain its good conservation over time. The most efficient cold rooms manage to maintain the color, texture, taste, and smell of the food they are trying to preserve.

Despite what may be commonly believed, a cold room does not cool but instead extracts the heat from the products deposited in it. This is achieved by using chemical refrigerants that absorb heat from food by evaporating its liquids.

Operation of a cold room:

Are you wondering – but how does a cold room work in Paro? To answer this question, it is necessary to explain the parts that make up a chamber and how they relate to each other in the refrigeration process:

– Compressor: it is responsible for absorbing the refrigerant liquid and retaining it until it enters the condenser.

– Condenser: the refrigerant transmits the heat of condensation and transforms into a liquid state.

– Expansion valve: the liquid reaches the expansion valve, where it loses part of its heat. It enters the evaporator as a mixture of liquid and vapor.

– Evaporator: this mixture boils under pressure and the fluid absorbs the latent heat from the environment, cooling itself.

In this way, in Wangdue Phodrang,the operation continues to unfold and cool the air until the food reaches an optimum temperature. The cycle repeats when the temperature exceeds a previously set limit.

About the Industrial refrigeration cycle – How it works?

In the cold storage business in Bhutan, the industrial refrigeration cycle is the backbone of many industries such as food and pharmaceuticals. Although its operating principles are practically the same as the common system, industrial refrigeration, it represents a logistical challenge for refrigeration system installation and maintenance companies.

The layout of large surface areas, with machinery and equipment that generate a high thermal load, added to a high volume of internal circulation, make the design of these systems a technical challenge. To understand industrial refrigeration cycle systems in their complexity, we must begin by understanding their nature.

Where is an industrial refrigeration cycle used?

First, we must locate ourselves physically and spatially in Phuentsholing. Industries, such as agri-food, pharmaceutical, and technology, require cold rooms for the preservation of products with controlled temperature and humidity variables. Additionally, there are areas in which certain industrial processes are carried out, such as packaging companies, food processors, and distributors of frozen products.

In these cases, it is necessary to build areas with different environmental variables, temperatures, and humidity. They also require isolated areas with refrigerated doors, panels, and refrigeration systems. The areas of human and machinery traffic, as well as the processing areas, require different cycles than those of storage.

Fast refrigerating doors:

There is a wide variety of high-speed doors whose main value is not only their opening and closing speed but also defining and isolating areas with greater climatic or hygienic control.

At Natural Storage Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (, we have various solutions in this type of product that have all approved materials and also include an unlocking system in case of power failure, with the option of manual lifting using a crank.

The main advantage of having a high-speed refrigerator door is the economic savings it represents for the company since this type of door is opened an average of 200 times a day. The food that is inside is subjected to sudden changes in temperature as many times as the doors are opened.

Between the opening and closing times, we estimate a total of 180 minutes to open the doors per day. If we install this type of opening, the time will be considerably reduced, thus increasing the quality of the products that we keep.

The reduction in energy consumption, greater safety for consumers, and dimensions are some of the advantages of high-speed refrigeration doors.

Professional Solutions in Sliding Refrigerated Doors:

At Natural Storage Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (, we have professional solutions for sliding refrigerated doors and also all types of doors if you are willing to start a Cold Storage Business in Bhutan. We are doors of excellent quality and that can be adapted for those freezing and conservation chambers and installations, as well as a tunnel in the case of the DC2 Model.

The materials used in its manufacture are resistant to low temperatures. We have various models depending on the use to be made with temperatures ranging from 0º to 40ºC. 

They are adaptable to different panel thicknesses. Our sliding refrigerated doors have a 0.6mm thick galvanized steel sheet on both sides. The doors are fixed using hidden screws and are treated with products that offer high corrosion resistance.

The sliding refrigerating doors offer a series of customizable characteristics according to the model selected, some of them are frames for finishing work, finishing off the leaf with a color lacquered sheet, or approved lock with the interior release. They also have a hermetic closure, which allows better food preservation by not allowing the cold to escape through the openings.

If you are thinking of installing a sliding refrigerated door in Gelephu, our team will offer you personalized advice.
