The era of rapid development of domestic cold chain is coming
According to the procurement data of the air conditioning and refrigeration market, in the next 15 years, the domestic cold chain logistics industry will usher in a new era of rapid development. Cold Chain Makes Food More Nutritious Yu Feng, Vice President of Asia Pacific of Ingersoll Rand (China) Investment Co., Ltd., explained the importance of cold chain to food from the perspective of food and food nutrition. For example, Yu Feng said that in the 50s, the number of food deaths in Japan was as high as 300 a year, but now it has dropped to single digits. The reason is that Japan's investment in the food cold chain industry is indispensable.
"For every 6°C increase in temperature, the total number of colonies in the food doubles, and the shelf life of the food is halved." Yu Feng said that temperature not only directly affects the storage time of food, but also greatly affects the nutritional value of food. "Experiments have shown that broccoli stored by refrigeration is not easy to lose its nutritional value, and is more in line with nutritional requirements than broccoli stored at room temperature." Yu Feng believes that with the gradual strengthening of consumers' concept of food and nutrition, more and more food will be processed, transported and stored through the cold chain in the future, which brings good opportunities for the development of China's cold chain logistics industry. Chen Weixin, director of Guangdong Key Laboratory of Fruit and Vegetable Preservation, also said: "The loss rate of fruits and vegetables at room temperature in domestic supermarkets is as high as 20%, and fruits and vegetables transported and stored through the cold chain not only reduce the loss rate well, but also can preserve the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables to a greater extent." ”
The comprehensive cost of cold chain products is not high Products through the cold chain link will increase the cost of production enterprises, which is a major obstacle to the development of the current cold chain market. Liu Peijun, chairman of Express Line (Beijing) Food Logistics Co., Ltd., believes that this is a misunderstanding. Liu Peijun explained, "The standardized and efficient operation of cold chain logistics enterprises can effectively reduce logistics costs, so that cold chain logistics can be applied to more industries. Therefore, cold chain logistics enterprises can help manufacturers save money, save costs and open up a larger market, so as to achieve a win-win situation for manufacturers and logistics providers. Of course, this requires the joint efforts of policies, associations, manufacturers, logistics companies and consumers." He believes that the main problem facing the domestic cold chain logistics industry is the low operational efficiency caused by small scale and non-standardization. Liu Weizhan, secretary-general of the Cold Chain Logistics Branch of the National Logistics Standardization Technical Committee, believes that the logistics industry has been listed as one of the top ten revitalization industries in China, and the cold chain logistics industry is also facing new development opportunities. "Compared with foreign countries, China's cold chain logistics industry is still in its infancy.
The next 15 years will be a period of rapid development of China's cold chain logistics industry. We will give full play to the strength of all parties, step up the formulation of various policies and regulations, and strive to create a good environment for the development of the domestic cold chain logistics industry from the policy perspective. Liu Weizhan said. Foreign cold chain giants enter China In March 2008, Australia became bigger Swire Pacific and Guangdong Food Import & Export Group jointly invested to establish Swire Cold Chain Logistics Co., Ltd. in Guangzhou. At the end of March this year, Swire New Cold Storage was completed, bringing the company's total cold storage capacity to 40,000 tons. In July 2009, Prvis, the second largest cold chain logistics operator in the United States, started construction of a cold storage base in Shanghai, and the cold storage in Shenzhen is currently in the stage of intensive preparation. In March 2010, Meileng, a larger cold chain enterprise in the United States, established a joint venture with China Merchants International to lay out the Chinese cold chain logistics market.
