Integrated Cold Chain Project

The Ministry of Food Processing Industry (MoFPI) has announced the Integrated Cold Chain (ICC) Scheme for Cold Chain, Value Addition & Preservation Infrastructure for faster growth of the cold chain industry. Lack of adequate infrastructure for fruits and vegetables leads to wastage and value loss of approximately Rs.33,000 Crs. every year. To avert this and support the growing horticulture and food processing industry, the Ministry aims to have 45 lakh tones of cold storage capacity and over 3000 reefer trucks for domestic transportation of fresh produce by 2012.

ICC Scheme will enable excellent infrastructure facilities for cold chain, value addition and the preservation industry along the supply chain from ‘the farm to market’ by organizing them into clusters. To do this, the government has offered a subsidy of Rs.10 Crs. for project development. Individuals or groups of entrepreneurs with business interests in cold chain, supply chain, warehousing and logistics can benefit from this.

Owing to its credentials, MoFPI has appointed Magus Consulting Pvt. Ltd. as the PMC for ensuring smooth implementation of projects through every stage. Incorporated in 1954, Magus forayed into providing Project Management Consultancy services in 2004 under the guidance of its current Director, Mr. Mayur Suchak. The Group is today amongst India’s leading PMCs, offering concept to completion services under one roof to a diverse set of clientele in Micro Infrastructure, Realty and various other sectors.
