Press release by FTAPCCI

The climate for growth hacking in this sector is supported by extensive agrarian economy. Deeper into the stats India is the largest producer of pulses, second largest in rice, wheat, sugarcane, fruits and vegetables. And of course the largest consumer market in the world. Incidentally we are also one of the largest producers in the milk and fifth in poultry. The climatic conditions and availability of extensive arable area are quite advantageous for development.

The rise in F&B segment also helps the processing and packaging industry accelerate on full throttle, because it is estimated that in the $ 400 Bn market share, food processing is supposed to be $130 Bn as per a report in FORBES. And mind you, this is 10% of Agri GDP and 12% of manufacturing GDP.

The same report also suggests that the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into the country, (since 2000 -2017) has been $7.81 Bn in the F&B segment. This makes the sector thirteenth largest domain where global investments flowed in.

All this supports the growth of the F&B ecosystem helping it thrive independently even without the need for exports or global supports. A report by CII suggests that India is forecasted to be the fifth largest consumer market in the world by 2025.

Hence explore the sea of opportunities available in this sector. Be there at the FTAPCCI event to know the intrinsic details on the prospects and government support. Catch us at the venue…..
