DUBLIN, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Research Report on China's Cold Chain Logistics Industry, 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Cold chain is an uninterrupted series of harvest, processing, packaging, storage, transport and sale activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of perishable products.

In China, vegetables and fruits easily perish during transport and in transient storage, which increases the operating cost of fresh food retailers like supermarkets and stores. But if they were in a good cold chain system, their shelf life and marketable time could be lengthened or even doubled. If the shelf life of perishable products like vegetables and fruits was extended from one day to three days, fresh food retailers' loss would decrease at 30%-50%.

Food decaying is the main reason for food safety risks and resources waste. And the close attention paid to food safety has driven a sharp pick up in cold chain market for foods represented by meat, fruit, vegetable, seafood and dairy product. With the increasing per capita income and improvements in living conditions, Chinese people put a high demand for food freshness. Therefore, the demand for cold chain transport of vegetables, fruits, meats and processed products has increased remarkably.

In 2014, meat production in China exceeded 87 million tons, vegetable 700 million tons, fruit 260 million tons, dairy products 26 million tons and seafood 64 million tons. Besides, large amounts of meat and frozen food are produced every year in China too. Temperature fluctuation in cold storage and transport is one of the main reasons for food quality decline. To ensure those perishable foods' freshness and quality, cold chain logistics is needed.

By the end of 2014, China had a freezer capacity of about 110 million cubic meters and less than 50, 00 refrigerator vehicles, lagging far behind developed countries in per capital terms.
