The Food Industry in India

According to IBEF, the Indian food industry is poised for huge growth, increasing its contribution to the world food trade every year. In India, the food sector has emerged as a high-profit sector. The role of the Indian government has been instrumental in the growth and development of the industry. The Indian food and grocery market is the world?s sixth largest, with retail contributing 70 per cent of the sales. It is projected to grow at a rate of 104 per cent, touching US$ 482 billion by 2020.

Since the White Revolution, India's milk industry has grown manifold and is one of the biggest in the world. India?s dairy market is multi-layered. India?s large consumption market, its existing milk supplies and established consumer preference for dairy products have encouraged many global dairy companies. The Indian food processing industry is on an assured track of growth and profitability, thanks to the rapid advances in developing food technologies that are essential for the conversion of farm produce into usable food items. Therefore, the career of Separator Man has many opportunities in India.
