Food Industry in India

According to IBEF, The Indian food industry is poised for huge growth, increasing its contribution in 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% of the sales. It is projected to grow at the rate of 104%, touching US$ 482 billion by 2020.

The Indian edible oil market is the fourth largest in the world and accounts for 9.3% of the world?s oil seed production. The per capita consumption of oil is also growing at a very fast rate. The Indian edible oil industry is highly fragmented, with the presence of a large number of participants in the organized and unorganized sectors. This shows that in coming decades a boom can be expected in the sector with immense demand of trained professionals. Therefore, a career as an Oil Crusher Operator has a bright future and opportunities are only going to rise in the coming years.
