Food Processing Industry, Cold Chain and Frozen food distribution systems : A Brief

India has tremendous potential to become the primary source of agricultural products, more specifically food products in the world. It has about 53% of arable land - land available for cultivation of crops as compared to a measly average of about 11% for the rest of the world. It has some feathers in it's cap as the second highest fruit and vegetable producer in the world, 6th largest producer of fish and such like but still doesn't make up to the top 10 food exporting countries.If it weren't for some severe infrastructure and technology issues, there is actually stopping for this gigantic food bowl. With large tracts of arable land, inexpensive labour and high-quality produce tumbling out of the barns, there is a potential so huge that sometimes, the scope and scale is almost unbelievable.

However, if one had to point out at one single single reason as to why the Indian agricultural industry is such a laggard when pitted against the global standards, it could be the pathetic state of the logistics, distribution and and an inefficient supply chain. India faces an acute problem of large amounts of food wasted away due to the lack of a proper cold storage, cold chain and frozen food distribution system. If only this was in place, huge amounts of food could have been processed into some kind of value added foods and sold both locally and abroad.Annually, there is usually a large amount of such agricultural produce that is waste away. If there were cold storage systems, efficient cold chain, logistics and distribution companies, it could have been possible to process these primary products into newer, secondary products and resold to consumers locally and internationally. A strategy needs to be carved out for the growth of this industry and a lot of investment action is yet to see some real action.

Investment in cold storage, cold chain distribution, installation of food processing plants across the country, applied research on harvesting technologies an a rapid development of the food retail industry are all necessary steps that would ensure an organic growth in this sector.

What is Cold Chain?

A cold chain is basically a logistics system, which helps in maintaining and providing a series of facilities for ensuring ideal storage conditions for the persihables from the point of origin to the point of sale. A well developed and efficiently organized cold chain reduces wastage, spoilage and helps keeps the perishables intact thereby helping to maintain the quality of the harvested food products ultimately making the whole system cost effective to the farmers and that which ensures top-notch quality to the end user.

dry red wine

I have a recipe for "Baked Chickpeas Provencale" that sounds simply exquisite; however, it calls for dry red wine. I am not of age to obtain alcohol, nor would either of my parents allow me to use it in the recipe. Does anyone know of any suitable substitutions that would not alter the outcome of the recipe, or is this just wishful thinking on my part? Thank you in advance!


French Veg*anism

For my high school French class, I am doing my final project on veg*anism and veg*an lifestyles in France. If anyone could point me to some credible sources, that would be fantastic...I haven't had much luck with the search engines. Books, articles, websites, etc. can be in French and/or English and/or Spanish.

Additionally, if you know a great French recipe that finicky eaters would enjoy, please do not hesitate to share!

Thank you in advance.

Does anyone know what items at Chili's at vegetarian-friendly? Problem: I'm allergic to peppers. (Oh, the irony of going to a place named "Chili's" when that's the case.)

I have been a vegetarian since about 1986. Vegetarianism was a piece of cake for me. No issue whatsoever. Becoming Vegan has been a never-ending challenge. I don't drink milk or eat eggs straight out, but if they are an ingredient, I usually will. (whereas I don't do that with meat at all)

Here are some of my issues, any suggestions or advice would be appreciated as I am finally at the point of being disgusted with myself for not being able to go vegan by now.

Cheese, god help me I love cheese. I have yet to find a good vegan alternative.

Eating out. I eat out a LOT. I do not cook and have no intentions of cooking. I do not eat fast food but what are some favorite vegan meals at other chain restaurants?

Convenience. Again I don't cook so ease is a must. I need to be able to grab something and go. Frozen, prepackaged, whatever. I love PBJ but there is only so much I can eat of it.

Pizza. My husband is NOT a vegetarian we order Pizza a lot. What major chains have vegan crust?

I know Peta has a nice list of easy vegan shopping items on their site but is there another sire that has a similar list or even a list for restaurants? I used to have a guide, by the vegetarian society I think, but I can't find it anymore.

Wow no one really posts in here a lot. I was just going to see if anyone knew any good vegetarian places or places that serve vegetarian in the like southern Wisconsin/Northern Illinois.

I've found a few but a girl needs a little variety in her life.
