The Maharashtra State Agricultural Marketing Board undertook the first initiative in the State (1990), and even in the country, to promote the use of Temperature Management Technology (TMT) by setting up of PC & CS facilities under the Co-operative sector. The principle objective was to promote exports of fresh fruits and vegetables from the State. The MSAMB then identified technology, imported the technology, planned and implemented PC & CS facilities. Since then, under the guidance of the MSAMB, 32 PC & CS facilities have been set up in the Co-operative sector in the State. Due to this pioneering effort by the MSAMB, today Maharashtra is the largest exporter of fresh Grapes from the country and exports nearly 70% of all fresh fruits and vegetables from the country. The State has also successfully exported fresh Pomegranate and Mango using the PC & CS facilities.
MSAMB has given technical guidance to establish 32 pre-cooling and cold storage facilities of co-operative societies in the State. Grapes have been exported from these facilities.
