By Sandikar

Food PreservationMost food items such as vegetables and fruits are perishable in nature. Apart from that there are many other factors which are responsible for this. Delay in distribution of the food items due to lack of proper transport facility. Lack of packing is another important factor that leads to the growth of microorganism which deteriorates the food quality. Often surplus food items are stored for sale in off-season which damages the food quality. Fruits and vegetables are the main constituents of our diet and are the main supplement of essential minerals, vitamins and fibers. This problem can be solved in two ways which are as follows

1. By creating proper cold storage to retain the quality and freshness of the food
