The food processing industry in India has matured into a high-growth, high-profit industry that plays a crucial role in connecting Indian farmers with consumers on both the domestic and global markets.
Through Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI), Government of India is making all efforts to encourage investments across the value chain in India. With India moving from a position of scarcity to surplus in terms of food production, the opportunities for increasing food processing are numerous. Food Processing is a sunrise sector and even with the advent of large MNC players, there is always demand for locally processed food. The changing food habits, consumption patterns, low production costs, and food preferences have significantly contributed to the boom in the food processing industry, and open doors for many new food processing companies in India.
