As we all know that the food processing industry forms an important segment of the Indian economy in terms of contribution to GDP, employment and investment, and is a major driver in the country's growth in the near future. This is also one of the focus sectors under Make in India initiative of Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Indian Food Processing Sector has already emerged prominently on the global manufacturing map. There has been a constant inflow of new technologies and investments into the sector. As per CII estimates, the sector has the potential to attract USD 33 billion Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in the next 10 years. The Food Processing Sector has witnessed the growth rate of nearly 20 per cent in the past few years.
