Food Processing Sector in India

Food processing sector is a vital link between agriculture and industry. It helps with commercialization of farming with measures like contract farming, where it provides a regular income for farmers. It also provides employment in a large scale and enhances the reach of farmer produce with increase in storage life and value additions.

The Indian food processing industry is one of the largest in the world in terms of production, consumption, export and growth prospects. It has moved up the value chain from simple packaging, pickling to innovative ready-to-eat products and beverages. Govt initiatives in food parks, cold storage infrastructure is also yielding results.

There is a huge demand for convenience foods with changing lifestyle and urbanization.
India has a strong agricultural production base – as it produces annually 90 million tonnes of milk (highest in the world); 150 million tonnes of fruits and vegetables (second largest); 485 million livestock (largest); 204 million tonnes of food grains (third largest); 6.3 million tonnes of fish (third largest); 489 million poultry and 45,200 million eggs. However, around 30 % of food produced is wasted which augurs untapped potential in food processing.
