Cold chain is a system, used for the management & transportation of temperature sensitive products through thermal and refrigerated methods of packaging. It maintains a product within a stated low-temperature range from harvest or production to consumption. It is also known as cool chain. It is a temperature-controlled supply chain. It is used to preserve and ensure the shelf life of products, for instance, seafood, frozen food, fresh agricultural produce photographic film, chemicals, and pharmaceutical drugs. Such products, during transport and in transient storage, are sometimes referred as cool cargo.
According to study, “Brazil Cold Chain Market Outlook to 2023 - By Cold Storage and Cold Transportation, By Ownership (Owned and Rented), By End Users (Meat and seafood, Fruits and Vegetables, Dairy products, Bakery and Confectionery, Pharmaceuticals and others)” the key companies operating in the Brazil cold chain market are Friozem Armazens Frigorificos Ltd., Arfrio Armazens Gerais Frigorificos, Superfrio Armazens Gerais Ltd., AP Logistica Group, Brado Logistica S/A, CAP Logistica Frigorificada Ltd., Brasfrigo S/A, Martini Meat S/A, Logfrio S/A, Comfrio, Localfrio S/A. The Key companies are competing with each other on the basis of parameters for instance temperature range, price per pallet, location, storage capacity, and integrated services.

The cold chain market is driven by increase in preservation of convenience food products owing to modernization, followed by growth of international trade due to trade liberalization, rise in consumer demand for perishable foods, implementation of dietary strategies on usage of fresh food products over processed food and increase in need for temperature control to prevent potential health hazards. However, environmental concerns regarding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, lack of infrastructural support in emerging markets and high energy & infrastructure costs may impact the market. Moreover, government support for infrastructure development to decrease post-harvest & processed food wastage, increase in FDI in emerging markets and rise in demand for organized retail are key opportunities for market.
Brazil cold chain market is expected to witness higher growth rate owing to increase in exports of refrigerated products from the country, rise in adopting modern technologies & automation, increase in consumption of meat & seafood and fruits & vegetables and improvement in infrastructure facilities over the forecast period. In addition, the market share of cold transport is anticipated to increase in the near future due to improved infrastructure facilities.
