Background / Rationale

The food processing industry in India is one of the largest in terms of production, consumption, export and growth prospects. The government has been reinforcing this sector with various policy initiatives, to encourage commercialization and value addition to agricultural produce.
 
Considering the growth witnessed by this sector in the last decade and further improvement in growth rate expected in the years to come, this sector presents varied opportunities for investment across the entire agri-value chain. India's agricultural sector, especially food processing and allied activities is going through a major alteration driven by improving policy environment, increasing public private participation and an increasing thrust on the improvement of rural infrastructure.
 
Challenges being faced by food processing are high levels of fragmentation in marketing and distribution of food products in India, growing concerns about food safety across developed and developing nations of processed foods, unorganized food retail and the requisite skilled manpower required in this sector.
 
Thus, it is now time for consolidation process of growth drivers by making corresponding changes in policies governing marketing, industrial development and skills as well as creating awareness about food quality and safety norms.
To address this subject matter of national importance ASSOCHAM proposes to hold a “Conference on Linking Growth Drivers of Food Processing Industries; Market, Retails, Quality with Food Safety and Skills”
