Agriculture cold storages are specially designed cold storages for agricultural produce and perishable food items like fish, meat, poultry and dairy.
Agriculture cold storage plays a pivotal role in the post-harvest management of food. Perishable food items are stored anywhere between a few days to a few months at low temperature in climatically controlled chambers. The produce may be stored in a cold chamber directly after the harvest or after some processing.
The nature of the item to be stored decides what kind of temperature needs to be setup and what are the levels of oxygen or relative humidity to be maintained. Agriculture cold chains minimize the post-harvest loss of food items. In many developed nations almost 90% of all the food that lands on the table has come through a cold chain.
