Strategies for Development of Food Processing Enterprises


The Indian food processing sector has 1.3 billion potential customers and is among the fastest growing economies in the world. Globally India is ranked first in several agri- commodities and second in total food production. In India, vegetable and fruit processing is almost uniformly divided between unorganized and organized sectors. Unorganized sector, which includes a number of traditional and modern food units, takes over a majority of market share in Indian food processing market as compared to the organized sector that holds a share of 42 %. While products such as pulp and juice concentrate are primarily produced by the organized sector, unorganized sector has a strong foothold in traditional areas including items such as pickles, squashes and sauces. In this, pickles form strongest category by size. The policymakers have identified food processing as a key sector in encouraging labour movement from agriculture to manufacturing.
