Cold chain and testing technology work together to optimize the agricultural food supply chain

Author:QINSUN Released in:2024-01 Click:78

Recently, a data agency released a report stating that the total amount of the top 20 transactions in the agricultural and food supply chain sector in 2019 exceeded 1.6 billion US dollars. It is not difficult to find that the agricultural and food industry has received attention from capital and is currently in a critical period of development, and the relevant food supply chain is also being further improved. At present, the agricultural food supply chain is showing two major characteristics: the rise of cold chain logistics; The second is the expansion of market space for food testing systems.

Cold chain logistics reduces losses

Nowadays, consumers are very fond of fresh and healthy food, and most of the agricultural food circulating on the market is fresh. But fresh food has a short shelf life, and there are pain points of high loss and waste during transportation. Therefore, for agricultural food suppliers, reducing food waste and delivering food safely and efficiently to consumers is an important link for enterprises to seize market share. Among them, cold chain logistics plays a crucial role.

Cold chain logistics is different from traditional logistics. It refers to the process in which food flows from the supply location to the receiving location, keeping the food in a specified low-temperature environment to ensure product quality and reduce food loss. In the past two years, with the deepening of research on refrigeration and temperature control technology in China, refrigeration and insulation technologies have continuously matured, the performance of cold chain logistics related infrastructure has been improved, and the industrial chain has gradually improved.

At the same time, domestic policies on cold chain logistics construction are constantly being implemented, bringing policy benefits to the industry. At an important meeting held by the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China in July last year, the construction of urban and rural cold chain logistics facilities was included in the construction of new infrastructure to fill the gaps in urban and rural cold chain logistics. At the same time, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Commerce of China have also launched pilot policies to improve the agricultural product supply chain through the Internet of Agriculture and Commerce, providing financial support for related construction enterprises and projects.

Improving Food Testing Quality

In addition to short shelf life, agricultural food also has certain pain points in terms of food quality, such as the spread of foodborne diseases and the abuse and residue of agricultural and veterinary drugs. This requires relevant supply enterprises to do a good job in food quality and safety testing to prevent food safety accidents. In recent years, with the tightening of food supervision, the number of enterprises using food quality and safety testing equipment for self inspection has been increasing. It is expected that by 2020, the expenditure of related enterprises in food testing will reach 12.1 billion yuan.

At the same time, domestic food testing technology is also constantly developing. It is understood that the commonly used food detection technologies in China at present mainly include four aspects: food toxin detection, genetically modified food detection, biological pollution detection, and drug residue detection. Related equipment is also constantly being developed and used, such as automatic microbial rapid detection and analysis systems, real-time fluorescence quantitative PCR detection systems, and rapid pathogen immune magnetic bead gene screening systems, which are currently common food quality testing equipment.

In order to further ensure food consumption safety, domestic food testing policies are constantly being introduced, and food testing standards, definitions of various indicators, testing frequency and total amount are all being tightened. This not only makes food regulation stricter, but also brings new development directions to food testing equipment. The demand for detection equipment with faster detection speed and higher detection accuracy, especially fast detection technology, is constantly increasing in the current market and has become one of the important directions for the development of food safety detection technology.

Editor's conclusion: With the increase in world population and the upgrading of consumption levels, the agricultural and food industry is continuously expanding. For relevant production enterprises, the top priority for the current development of the industry is the optimization of the agricultural food supply chain. This requires enterprises to use cold chain logistics and food testing technology to reduce food loss, improve food quality, and help enterprises better improve their products and supporting services.
