In India, the prevalence of cold storage has significantly increased post the launch of Covid-19 vaccines. Being temperature sensitive, these vaccines are prone to be stored in safe, effective and efficient places. Hence, the Government of India and private players have taken a big step in ensuring safety and providing support to smoothen vaccination drives in India. Apart from vaccine storage, cold storage are widely used in retails or the HORECA sector. As per UN approx. 40% of food produced in India is wasted and two of the major contributing factors being inadequate cold storage and transportation systems. Elanpro being into a business of both Horeca and biomedical segment has identified the roadblocks and leaped in investing and acquiring firms showcasing larger impact and potential for growth. For efficient cold storage, there is a need for reliable, safe and potential products embedded with best-in-class technology and upgraded features.
Driven by an overarching mission to offer world-class technology to its end customers, Elanpro has been aggressively focusing on expanding its product portfolio by adding cold chain storage. The corporation actively participated in and invested in Icold Refrigeration to streamline the vaccine storage issue and minimize food or other pharmaceutical product loss.
