US Companies to showcase at India Cold Chain Show 2014

Cold Chain OpeningThe U.S. Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service is pleased to announce that it has granted Trade Fair Certification status to Reed Exhibitions to organize the official United States Exhibitor Pavilion at the India Cold Chain Show 2014, December 10-12, 2014 in Mumbai, India.
The India Cold Chain Show 2014 is the only nationally focused business development and selling venue in India concentrating on the cold chain products and services sector. In 2013, this trade event attracted 110 exhibitors and 4,100 visitors from 10 countries. There are significant selling and business development opportunities now because India is shifting the horticulture, meat & poultry, dairy & dairy products sectors into a cold supply chain. India’s cold chain sector is estimated to be at $2-3 billion, growing at 20-25% annually, and is expected to reach $8 billion by 2015. India wastes over 30% of their produce due to a lack of cold chain facilities.
There are 6,000 cold storage facilities in India with a capacity of 23.66 million metric tons servicing less than 11% of the produce crop. India has declared the build out of the cold chain sector a national priority and is developing many schemes, subsidies, and policies to facilitate modernization, ease the importation of foreign equipment, and encourage foreign investment. Market liberalization, increasing income and shifts in consumer demand also offer attractive selling and business development opportunities for U.S. cold chain exporters.
Through certification, the U.S. Commercial Service recognizes the capability and exhibition experience of Reed Exhibitions to organize a world class event for U.S. exhibitors to showcase products and services for the cold chain sector. The show serves as an excellent venue for U.S. companies to establish and expand overseas distribution, generate sales leads, evaluate competitors, and work with U.S. Commercial Service Trade Specialists to identify potential buyers and partners. The U.S. Commercial Service helps U.S. companies establish international business relationships.
The agency’s global network includes locations in more than 100 U.S. cities and in American consulates and embassies in nearly 80 countries.
