GCCA - Facilitating the Cold Chain Development in India


India today, stands at the door step of a double digit
growth in its economy It is poised and capable of being the hub of many manufacturing & Services sectors like Automobile, Steel, Information Services, Food and Food processing etc Among the various manufacturing and production related hubs that have potential to come up, the Food sector has the highest potential

Mobile Ripening Just an IDEA!!


there is a Railhead nearby
There is an opportunity to use the Indian Railways network (largest in the world and touches the hinterland of India with almost 90% coverage to villages and cities). We need to leverage the network to build a mobile ripening for large volume harvests like bananas. Journey days can be anything from 2 days to 5 days. The same can be also used to transport the fresh produce like Apples and carrots with adjustments in RH and Temperature. Ideally a whole train of say 10 to 15 wagons can be used for this type of transportation (approx. payload will be 100 to 150 MT equivalent to about 15 trucks at one time and well less than the time taken by road transport).
