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 Indian beer industry is growing at 15% per annum. Though we have thrived on large players in the beer making process like the UB Group, the culture of micro brewing is a trend that is quickly catching up. Brewing is an un-touched segment and with the increase in demand for breweries in the country there is an immense demand for trained professionals. Therefore, the career of a Brew Master has a bright future and opportunities are only going to rise in the coming years.
