Indian Food Processing industry is expected to attract $33 bn investment by 2024, so the scope is tremendous. yet being highly competitive sector with both organised and unorganised players in the industry, right strategy and right move is required to achieve the desired goals.

With globalisation and increasing trade across the borders approximately about 460 million tonnes of food valued at $ 3 billion is traded annually.

During FY 2011-15, India’s exports of processed food related products have been growing at a CAGR of 23.3 percent. The unorganised sector accounts for 42 percent of India’s food processing industry. The sizeable presence of small-scale industries points to the sector’s role in employment generation. As per the study, though the market falls under the unorganised sector in the country, the organised sector has a larger share in the secondary processing segment than the primary one.

Food and grocery constitute a substantial part of India’s consumption basket accounting for around 31 percent share in the total. In contrast, consumers in other countries spend a much lower proportion of their income on food and grocery – 9 percent in the US, 17 percent in Brazil and 25 percent in China. Food and grocery is the largest segment in India‘s retail sector, with a share of more than 60 percent in India‘s total retail market in 2014.
