Fruit and Vegetable Cold Storage: A Key Tool for Cold Chain Logistics Industry to Achieve Anti-Seasonal Sales and Increase Selling Price
With the development of society and the improvement of people's living standards, the demand for fresh fruits and vegetables is increasing. However, due to seasonal and geographical constraints, the supply of fruits and vegetables is unstable and susceptible to contamination and deterioration, thus affecting their quality and taste.
In recent years, the rapid development of the cold chain logistics industry has driven the trend of cold storage construction, especially for the preservation of vegetable and fruit products in cold storage. Its preservation effect on agricultural products is gradually recognized by consumers.Cold storage is an indispensable tool in the cold chain logistics industry, which can help achieve off-season sales, increase product prices, and play an important role in promoting the development of the agricultural product industry.
1.Principle ofcold storagepreservation
The basic principle of cold storage is by way of low-temperature storage, which reduces the respiration and metabolism of fruits and vegetables by adjusting the proportion of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, ethylene and other components, humidity, temperature and air pressure in the reservoir, reducing the loss of nutrients and the breeding of microorganisms, so that they can be preserved for a longer period of time under specific conditions, thus meeting people's demand for fresh fruits and vegetables.
2.Advantages of vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses
Ensure the freshness and quality of vegetables and fruits. Large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses can provide a stable temperature, humidity, and gas environment, enabling vegetables and fruits to maintain optimal freshness and quality during storage. For example, pineapple is suitable for storage at 5 ℃, oranges at 3-6 ℃, apples and snow pear at about 0 ℃. These different types of vegetables and fruits can be well preserved in large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses.
3.Reduce transportation costs.
Large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses can store a large amount of vegetables and fruits at a specific time, thereby reducing the cost of vegetable and fruit transportation. Vegetables and fruits can be stored in the production area and then distributed when needed, reducing transportation time and costs, and improving the sales efficiency of vegetables and fruits.
4.Increase sales opportunities for vegetables and fruits.
Large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses can provide merchants with longer sales time and increase sales opportunities for vegetables and fruits. During the alternation of seasons, some out of season vegetables and fruits can be stored in large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses, providing fresh vegetables and fruits in different seasons to meet the needs of consumers.
5.Increase the added value of vegetables and fruits.
Large vegetable and fruit preservation warehouses can extend the storage time of vegetables and fruits,some vegetables and fruits can be further processed during storage, such as refrigerated processing, frozen processing, etc., thereby improving the added value and market competitiveness of vegetables and fruits.
