Food Processing in India: Opportunities and Constraints
AbstractFor providing remunerative prices for the agricultural produce it is important that the production advantage available to India is transformed into the processing advantage. The Indian food industry has no dearth for market opportunities on account of thriving domestic consumption and new avenues of foreign demand. Food processing is an important link between agriculture and industry. Scale of operations along with a fragmented supply chain is the major impediment in the path of speedy growth of food processing in India. Concentration at the level of production, processing and retailing can provide the much needed impetus for the sector. The Government of India has identified food processing sector as the sunrise sector. A number of initiatives are being put in place for promoting primary as well as secondary processing. For an unhindered growth it becomes important to address the demand and supply side constraints of food processing in India. Agriculture will keep on playing a vital role in the Indian economy and food processing will go a long way for providing opportunities for sustainable and profitable agriculture in time to come.
