Storage and preservation are essential parts of a supply chain and becomes crucial in case of goods that are perishable. Cold storage and commercial refrigeration have witnessed a rise in terms of demands precisely with the increasing consumer knowledge and their ability to research and perceive a solution customised to their requirements.
Commercial refrigeration is a procedure that has vast diversities in terms of nature of the goods being stored, their duration and their responses to adverse situations. How-ever, the commercial refrigeration industry in India faces challenges of product manufacturers and service providers that lack proper knowledge, training and understanding of the customer requirements due to lack of experience in protecting and storing perishable goods by refrigeration.
This threatens the quality, safety of the items stored through inappropriate and non-complaint consultation finally leading to huge losses from damage of stored goods being incurred by clients. Blue Cold is an Indian manufacturer and supplier focused only on delivering world-class commercial refrigeration solutions to Indian consumers with integrated in-house customisation ability.
Prem Sakhuja, the Managing Director of Blue Cold says, “Blue Cold has been into the commercial refrigeration equipment from its very inception and aims to do so in future. It is immensely beneficial for the customer as they get a need-based solution rather than being catered simply by product-based solution. The genesis of Blue Cold
has been to manufacture world-class products in India and make them available to the Indian consumers at affordable prices. Our designs of products are not just quality and compliance certified but also with regards to design.”
Enriching Consumer Knowledge
Trends of the commercial refrigeration industry have reflected the market to be evolving into a project-based market from a small product-based market over the past five years. Nowadays, the consumer need is driven by their own research and the input they receive from major industry stakeholders like Puf manufacturers, installers, applications specialists and manufacturers.
Prem adds, “The installation companies and their engineers play a crucial role in the refrigeration equipment industry. Design, Manufacture and Supply comes under the 1st industrial vertical and the installation is the other. The quality of installation has also improved in last five which resulted in the installers demanding much better and state-of-the art equipment. Preservation of the product is crucial prior to storing it in a refrigerator. Therefore, pre-cooling, blast freezing has gained importance.” The consumers being well educated have a clear perception of their need and their decisions are not limited to the seller’s supply.
