With the rapid development of economic globalization and cross-border e-commerce, the food import and export trade has encountered growth opportunities. Meanwhile, food safety has gained increasing attention from consumers worldwide. Most food products require cold chain transportation. However, in recent years, various safety hazards have emerged in the process of food cold chain logistics, with disruptions and food spoilage causing significant waste. Ensuring the safety and traceability of the entire food cold chain has become a critical factor limiting its development. This paper proposes strategies for the development of food cold chains, including the establishment of a comprehensive standard system, promoting orderly development of traceability systems, and enhancing traceability supervision platforms to achieve transparency in food cold chain safety.
