At a signing ceremony on Saturday 6 June Dutch Premier Mark Rutte officially opened the FoodTechIndia project as part of the trade mission to India (with ministers Ploumen and Dijksma).
TNO is one of the partners in this project in India whose aim is to establish an efficient cooling chain for food products from source to supermarket shelf. The sizeable 6 million euro project is a public-private partnership and is funded in part by the food security (FDOV) programme of the Dutch government. The project is being driven by Larive International along with the other partners Broekman Logistics and Rijkszwaan, and the Indian Future Group (retail supermarket chain) and Art of Living (NGO, famer participation). This is the first project in India to demonstrate an efficient cooling logistics and storage cycle throughout the whole food supply chain from source to supermarket shelf. All partners are active in various parts of the cool chain both in the Netherlands and in India.
TNO has a major role in this project and is demonstrating an innovative new solar-powered cooling application for small-scale decentralised cold stores and trucks. The technology uses direct sunlight and evaporated heat to create a cooling effect in relation to the outside temperature. The great advantage of this technology is that it can be set up locally and cheaply, which means that the shelf life of farm products in India can be significantly extended and the product losses, in terms of quality and quantity, considerably reduced. This has a direct impact on boosting the incomes of these small-scale farmers as well as the availability of high-grade food for the Indian consumer. This project is an initiative of TNO’s Innovation for Development and will run for five years. The demonstration of the cooling chain is taking place in the Indian states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, where it will have a big impact on a round a thousand local farmers and distributors.
