A study on challenges faced by perishable exporters with special reference to Coimbatore
Dr. Poorna K and Karthika R
Perishable products are those that worsen in quality over time, and become lesser in value. Perishable goods decay rapidly if not refrigerated, or if some other preservation technique is not employed. Especially foodstuff, subject to destruction or death or decay. The term perishable products encompass fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and eggs. These items need to be shipped under strictly controlled temperature and storage conditions. Dried canned or otherwise preserved foods are not considered perishable and therefore do not require such strict shipping and handling conditions. India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world and is the second largest vegetable exporter. There is a marginal decline in perishable air exports (fruits, vegetables, flowers, seafood, meat) out of India, in the range of -2 per cent. “We have not seen the demand for mango and grape exports for the past 3-4 years, as compared to the earlier years. Mango exports to USA have also not been successful,”
