First cold chain facility to open in Bangalore for IG International
Indian logistics platform Horizon Industrial Parks is to build a cold chain facility in Bangalore for leading fruit importer IG International. The facility will be powered by solar energy and have a capacity of more than 200 refrigerated containers per day. It is expected to be completed by mid-2023.
Tarun Arora, director of IG International, said:
India’s fresh fruit imports hit record levels in 2021. To satisfy the growing appetite, we require a cold storage facility to ensure we can preserve quality and safety across the supply chain and reduce lead-time.
Horizon Industrial Parks CEO Rahul Pandit said:
Cold chain facility requires a high degree of storage specifications to ensure product quality and maintain the freshness of the food.
