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 the rate of 104 per cent, touching US$ 482 billion by 2020.

The confectionery market of India is divided into three segments: chocolate, sugar confectionery and gum, which is further divided into sub-segments. It has been observed that various domestic and multinational companies are gearing up for gaining profit from the growing confectionery industry of India. The emerging trend of gifting confectionery products and the untapped rural market are among the key factors that are expected to fuel the growth in the Indian confectionery market in the near future. These factors will lead to the success of Wafer Baking Machine Operator (Baking) jobs and this role will witness a tremendous growth in the future.
