Food Industry in India

The Indian Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) in their report on the Food industry of India have referred this industry as the highest profit incurring sector considering the scope it has to offer for value addition. In particular the food processing industry in India has been recognized as a high-priority area. This is because the food processing industry is one of the largest industries in India and is ranked fifth in terms of production, consumption, export and expected growth.

The latest figures have revealed that the total food production in India is likely to double in the next 10 years as the country?s domestic food market is estimated to reach US$ 258 billion by 2015.

Considering all world data the Indian food and grocery market is the world?s sixth largest with its retail contributing 70 per cent of the sales. It is projected to grow at the rate of 104 per cent, touching US$ 482 billion by 2020. This indicates vast scope for both investors and exporters.

As per the Indian Dairy Industry 2014 Report, the White Flood in 1970s, the milk industry in India witnessed the first wave of development in the milk production which gave India its status of the largest milk producer in the world.

With all these figures in consideration it is safe to say that the demand for a Mixing Tank Operator is there in the present and will surely increase in the coming years.
