Challenges: Lack of cold chain infrastructure in developing economies

Cold chain logistics have proved to be a vital requirement to increase the market share of frozen food in any country. However, developing countries are still lacking in cold chain infrastructure and are unable to supply safe frozen food products to their citizens. Frozen food has a long shelf-life; however, due to lack of infrastructure, the product is wasted easily leading to a loss for frozen food manufacturers. Lack of investment due to the monetary crisis in developing economies has been one reason slowing down the cold chain logistics business. This, in turn, has hampered the frozen food market. Poor infrastructure in cold chain logistics has also directly impacted the import & export business of frozen food products in developing countries such as Bangladesh, South Africa, and Myanmar. However, these developing countries offer a huge opportunity for investment in the market due to the rising acceptance among consumers in urban areas.
