Ecofrost Cold Storage

In rural India, farmers are forced to sell their produce because food items are perishable. Once they are ripe their price start to decline.  

Cold storages are centralized, few in number and privately managed. Monopoly and far from farm locations makes it difficult for farmers to access cold storages.

Electricity supply is erratic, there are high voltage fluctuations and effects due to climate make the supply unreliable for a cold storage to perform at optimized levels. 

In the absence of COLD CHAIN

30% of total perishable food produced is wasted.
