Nutrition and Food Security is a global challenge with huge social and economic costs; nearly every country faces a public health challenge. Millets are the crops who can add value to both the aspect of this urgency, thereby can address both nutritional insecurity and food security. The process still needs a development of a value chain for better production, processing, and value addition.

India has one of the world’s highest demographics of population suffering from malnutrition. In India, over decades, though there has been reduction in severe acute food insecurity, the under-nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies are widespread. The government has taken initiative of large food security and anti-poverty programs, still poor quality of food lacking essential micronutrients and unhygienic conditions of storage is a big problem in our country. Our dominant food habit entails the regime relying upon one type of food grains known as staple food crops. Millets on the other hand are the staple food of many communities and regions of India. Producing millets can also be very lucrative and there is a strong potential to acquire millet-based products falling under the category of RTE/RTS.

To address the subject matter, ASSOCHAM with the support of Ministry of Food Processing Industries, GoI is organising its National Conference on Millets: The Future Super Food for India on June 23, 2022 at Hotel Le Meridien, New Delhi. The conference will provide a platform for leaders in Food processing sector, practitioners, scientists, farmers, industries, organised agriculture sector, civil society, and NGOs to discuss and share experiences on successes, and to deliberate the opportunities and challenges faced in ensuring food and nutritional security.
