Abstract:
India is facing an acute agrarian crisis that takes the shape of paradox and harms stakeholders at various levels. High levels of food wastage are accompanied by high rates of malnutrition and the oppression of farmers engaged in food production. This is caused because of the gap that exists between the demand and supply of agricultural produce. This paper has explored the precise causes behind this agrarian crisis. Cold Storage Systems refer to the process, science, and technology that enable the storage and transportation of perishable commodities. The development of cold storage systems is imperative to filling these gaps between demand and supply of food. This paper has looked into the reasons behind the lack of development and popular usage of cold storage systems in India. The lack of necessary supportive infrastructure and the lack of information at the hands of the public about the benefits and usage of these systems are responsible. This paper has provided policy recommendations that could boost the growth of the cold storage industry which in turn is expected to reduce food wastage, increase exports and improve the general availability of food. Hence, the development of cold storage systems is instrumental in mitigating the agrarian crisis that is facing India.
