The Food Industry in India

The Indian Brand Equity Foundation in their report on the Food industry of India have referred to 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 metro and cosmopolitan cities in India offer a lot of brewing opportunities for professionals related to the emerging field of beer preparation. Brewing is a new profession emerging in the country and would climb its zenith within the present decade. This profession demands 10-12 hours of labour everyday.

With all these figures in consideration it is safe to say that the demand for a Filterman will surely increase in the coming years.
