WHY FOOD TECHNOLOGY?

India has the second-largest arable land right after the USA and world largest population of 140 crores demands for:

  1. A rise in per-capita income.
  2. Consumer awareness.
  3. Demand for nutritious food.

 

Why only Indians can rule the food sector?

India’s competitive advantage lies in its favorable climate, large agriculture sector and livestock base, long coastline, and inland water resources.

  1. India produces 198.4 million tonnes/ year.
  2. According to APEDA, India exports fruits and vegetables worth Rs. 9,182.88 crores/year.
  3. India exports buffalo meat products worth Rs. 22,668.48 Crores /year to the world.
  4. According to MOFPI, India produces 75 billion eggs annually.
  5. India is the second-largest producer of wheat and rice after China.

 

According to MOFPI, Food processing sector reached USD 258 billion in 2015. The food processing industry is one of the largest industries in India and ranks 5th in terms of production, consumption and exports.
