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 50-bn-rupee soft drink industry is growing now at 6-7% annually in India. Two of the leading soft drink manufacturers in India have a combined market share of around 95%, directly or through franchisees. The industry estimates that the beverage market should grow at twice the rate of GDP growth. It is estimated that the Indian market in this sector should grow by at least 12%.

Given all these figures it is safe to say that the demand for a Syrup Maker is there in the present and will surely increase in the coming years.
