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.

India?s current ice cream market is worth 3,000 crores, including the unorganized sector. The branded market has a host of national and international players. Increasing urbanization, rising incomes, consumer awareness, improved cold supply chains, growing deep freezer penetration and the growth of modern format retail facilities are giving a boost to the country?s frozen desserts business, which is highly capital intensive. Currently growing at 12-15 per cent annually, the future prospects of India?s ice cream market seem promising for manufacturers, suppliers and retailers. Therefore, the career of Ice Cream Maker has a bright future in India.
