Guidelines for Grading, Packaging,MarkingandLabeling, Stacking andStorage

1. GradingofHorticultureProduce
a. Grading of horticulture produce received in registered cold storage warehouse should for the
purpose of uniformity, be done in accordance with the provisions of the General Grading and
MarkingRules,1988madeundersection3oftheAgriculturalProduce(GradingandMarking)Act,
1937 (1 of 1937). However, Fruits and Vegetables may be graded and marked as per buyers
requirements too, provided the minimum requirements specified in the relevant schedule of
GeneralGradingandMarkingRules,1988 aremet.
b. For the above stated purpose, the registered cold storage warehouse should preferably avail
services of an "Authorized packer" i.e. a person or a body of persons who has been granted a
certificateofauthorizationtogradeandmarkFruitsandVegetablesinaccordancewiththegrade
standardsandprocedureprescribedundertheserules;
c. Where ever, Grade designation and Quality of horticulture produce has been set out under
General Grading and Marking Rules, 1988 the same should, for the purpose of uniformity, be
followed.InothercasesCODEXstandardsandgeneraltradestandardsforgrading&Markingmay
be adopted as per trading needs. The produce should be marked with Grade Designation
accordingly.

3. Method of packing: Horticulture produce may be packed in bags, plastic bins, plastic crates, CFB
boxesetc.asperbusinessrequirement. Prescriptionsregardingpacking madeunder GeneralGrading
and Marking Rules, 1988 made under section 3 of the Agricultural Produce (Grading and Marking)
Act,1937(1of1937) shouldbefollowed,whichisreproducedbelow;
a. HorticultureProduceshallbepackedinsuchawayastoprotecttheproduceproperly.
b. The materials used inside the package must be new, clean and of such a quality as to avoid
causinganyexternalorinternaldamagetotheproduce.
c. The use of materials particularly of paper or stamps bearing trade specifications is permitted
providedtheprintingor labeling hasbeendonewithnontoxic inkorglue.
d. Fruits and Vegetables shall be packed in each container in compliance with the recommended
InternationalcodeofpracticeforPackagingandTransportofTropicalFreshFruitandVegetables
(CAC/RCP 441995) of practice for export and as per the Instructions issued by the Agricultural
Marketingadviserfromtimetotimefordomesticmarketunlessadifferentgradingstandardsas

h. Contents of package may have different fruits and vegetables of different grades as per buyers
requirementswithproperlabeling.

6. StackingHorticulture produce needtobestackedinamannerfor whichthe refrigerationandair


circulation system has been designed so that air circulation at designed rate is not obstructed. For
this design volume to weight ration and prescribed space between two stacks, between side walls
and stack and door and stack must be followed depending on packaging, stacking system and
commoditystored.Nocontainer/bag/crates/CFBboxshouldbestoredinamannerthatobstructs

properly flagged by stack label. The packs should be handles in a manner so as not to cause
mechanicaldamagetohorticultureproduce.RacksystemorPalletisationneedtobeadoptedwhere
ever stack height is more. Fork lift is recommended in cases of NHBCS Type2 and 3 for stacking
beyondheightof1.5 m.

7. Storage It is necessary to maintain prescribed critical storage conditions in the cold storage at all
points of time. Critical Storage Conditions may be prescribed by Technical Standards for Cold
Storages.Inabsenceofanysuch prescriptionsstorageconditions prescribed byreputedinstitutions
like World Food Logistic Organization (WFLO), ICAR Institutions, CFTRI Mysore, NCDC etc may be
used.AutomatedPLCcontrolforstorageconditionsisadvisablesothatstoragedataloggingcanbe
accomplished automatically. Power back up should get switched on automatically in case of power
failure and the operating hours of power back up should also get logged automatically. Automatic

In order to size a cold store chamber for optimal utilization of space, it is suggested that first an
appropriate stacking arrangement of bags is planned out on the drawing board. The arrangement
shown in figure 1, has a footprint of 1640mm x 970 mm and can position 32 bags, up to 8 stack
height.The totalstackheightinthiscase is2320mm andweighs1600Kg.Now consideringthisasa

of cold storage warehouse, shall hold good. Cold Storage Warehouse should maintain following
operating manuals for the purpose of job assignment among workmen and also for training
purposes. This may also be useful for dispute redressal between holder of warehouse receipt and
