Atul Khanna: vice chairman of the Logistic and Supply Chain Committee of the newly formed National Centre for Cold Chain Development in India

The National Centre for Cold Chain Development  was set up in February as a public-private organization responsible for developing the cold chain in India.

It  will be led by a 22-member Governing Council, including government officials, representatives of the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry, produce growers, cold chain equipment manufacturers/suppliers, and others involved in the cold chain.

The National Centre is expected to provide an enabling environment for the cold chain sector and facilitate private investment in cold chain infrastructure.

It will narrow the gap in the supply and value chain from farm to fork by improving post-harvest farm storage, developing specialised transportation, and creating cold storage facilities that meet science-based standards

Its remit also includes issues such as standards and protocols related to cold chain testing, verification, certification, and accreditation according to international standards and efforts to reduce the gap in skilled human resources required for the cold chain sector.
