Food sector of India, in the last decade or so, has attracted attention of the world owing to the
tremendous potential the geography, climate and soil offer. Though, a leading producer of food in the world,
it is not known for the exports of food products. The poor export figures are attributed to inadequacies in
infrastructure for supporting the supply chains of perishables in the country, the cold chain. There are issues
of concern that need attention, like huge losses in perishables because of Infrastructural deficiencies. The
huge wastage of perishable food occur due to factors like: lack of precooling and storage facilities, dearth of
refrigerated carriers, fragmented supply chains, poor scarce application of latest tools and technologies, poor
product knowledge and lack of professionals. The collaboration among stakeholders like government
bodies, private corporations, cooperatives, farmers and federations is imperative but the building up phase is
still in the nascent stage. A well-organized cold chain reduces spoilage, retains the quality of the harvested
products and guarantees a cost efficient delivery to the consumer given adequate attention for customer
service. The main feature of the chain is that if any of the links is missing or is weak, the whole system fails.
