Jiutong Wulian Analysis on the Development of Cold Chain Logistics in Canada

As we all know, Canada belongs to North American countries and is also a developed country, so the cold chain logistics industry is also very developed. In this issue of the article, Jiutong Wulian Xiaobian will give you a brief introduction to the development status of Canadian cold chain logistics:

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is responsible for the nationwide safety and quality management of vegetables. Because Canada is located at high latitudes and temperatures are low, greenhouses are commonplace to ensure that people eat fresh vegetables throughout the year. For this reason, producers are particularly strict with the grading and packaging of vegetables. Canada's cold chain is characterized by keeping fresh at low temperatures throughout the entire period, so that the storage and transportation of vegetables must pass through cold chain logistics to reduce pollution and losses. Vegetables are kept from the field to the table. In a low-temperature environment, it effectively controls the breeding and spreading of harmful microorganisms and ensures food safety.

Development Characteristics of Canadian Agricultural Cold Chain Logistics

The core of cold chain logistics of agricultural products is full temperature control and real-time monitoring. From the field to the table, the world's advanced cold chain logistics technology is used throughout the cold chain transportation process.

Retail and consumption stages: In the final stage of the cold chain circulation, Canadian supermarkets all have equipment such as wall-type air curtain cabinets, low-temperature display cabinets, and air-conditioning systems with regular water spray devices. The citizens drive to the supermarket every week to buy, and then reach their own refrigerator.

Pre-cooling stage: pre-cooling is the cooling process before storage and transportation, using vacuum pre-cooling or ice temperature pre-cooling technology, such as Canadian broccoli processing company Melvin Farms, allowing fruits and vegetables to quickly cool to a set temperature, eliminate field heat, reduce respiratory intensity , Effectively extend the shelf life.

Storage phase: The use of automated cold storage technology, automatic storage, electronic data exchange and warehouse management systems, etc., to extend the shelf life by two to three times, and to increase carbon dioxide by reducing the amount of oxygen in the environment with today's most advanced atmospheric storage technology And nitrogen concentration, thereby inhibiting the respiration, through the ethylene blocker to reduce ethylene production, slow down the aging process.

Transportation and distribution stages: Transport through refrigerated trucks or refrigerators throughout the journey, with cooling, heating, temperature measurement and ventilation. Thomson Group, Canada’s largest third-party logistics company, in addition to a large-capacity, highly automated refrigeration facility, also has the most advanced forced-powered drive, automatic temperature control recording, and satellite monitoring “three-stage” refrigerated transport vehicle. Simultaneous delivery of three different temperature requirements of the goods.

Relevant data show that through the cryopreservation and transportation of vegetables, the loss of vegetables in Canada is only 5%, and the logistics cost is less than 30%. As early as the end of the 19th century, Canada began to refrigerate vegetables. After more than 100 years of development, socialized, professional, standardized vegetable cold chain storage and transportation has replaced the point-to-point “transportation” between vegetable gardens and food markets, so that vegetables can be stored and transported. The cost is lower, the efficiency is higher, and it is more convenient to detect and supervise. In order to better protect the safety of vegetables, the Food Inspection Agency has also established six general models for the quality inspection of vegetable and other vegetable foods, which are promoted nationwide. To ensure food safety, Canada has also adopted a base of aquaculture and planting patterns, there are 247,000 farms, domestic sales accounted for half of total production.
