  • —There is high wastage of perishables like fruits and vegetables due to inadequate availability of cold storage.
  • —Ministry implements cold chain scheme but is constrained by the lack of data on wastage to better plan its scheme.
  • —With no metric available for measuring changes in wastage level, policy formulation becomes difficult. Accordingly  a spread sheet model is required that can automatically estimate wastage levels periodically based on a standard methodology.
  • —In the spread sheet model secondary and survey data can be fed in so as to calculate wastage on periodic basis.
  • —The model can be based on the methodology used by CIPHET, Ludhiana in a recent study commissioned by Ministry of Food Processing.

Sample data required: No
