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 has seen progress in agricultural output as it has quadrupled its food grain production since independence in the last three decades. Recent estimates reveal that the demand for food grains alone is rising by 200 to 250 million tons in countries with growing population like India. The food processing industry in India has a very potent market for consumer food. This shows that in the coming decades a boom can be expected in the sector with immense demand for trained professionals. Therefore, the career of Grinder, Hand (Food Grain) has a bright future and opportunities are only going to rise in the coming years.
