Food wastage because of the inadequate and inefficient cold chain infrastructure is significantly actuating the growth of the cold chain market in China. On an average, the loss of perishable food in developing countries such as China is estimated to be between 20% and 50%. This is mainly due to the lack of cold chain facilities. In 2014, the percentage loss of fruits and vegetables accounted for around 20%-30% in China. This is because only 5% of these products are transported through cold chain. For aquatic products and meat, the percentage loss accounted for 12% and 15%, respectively during the same year.
