Exhibition & Conference

CII is organizing a conclave and exhibition on the ‘Future of the Ice-Cream Industry: Dynamics, Technology, Innovations and Scope for Growth’ at The Lalit, Mumbai on 26 February 2019.
Globally, ice cream is the most popular dessert. Since the industry is marginally capital intensive, it is very competitive. In 2014, China took over the United States as the largest ice cream market globally. In 2015, United States, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark and Belgium dominated the global ice cream market in terms of consumption.
Indian ice cream industry is one of the fastest growing segments of the dairy or food processing industry. India has a low per capita ice cream consumption of ice cream at 400 ml as compared with per capita consumption of ice cream of 22,000 ml in the United States and 3,000 ml in China. The ice cream industry in India generated revenue of more than USD 1.5 billion in 2016 and is projected to generate revenue of approximately USD 3.4 billion by 2021.
In India, the ice cream industry is mostly regional and there is a multitude of brands focusing on only one or two districts or in some case only one state. There are very few national brands and the major reason behind slow growth of the smaller players is the high perishability of ice cream products.
With the improving cold chain infrastructure in the country coupled with increasing disposable income and the changing lifestyle, this sector has great potential for growth. This exhibition cum conference seeks to showcase the different varieties of ice cream produced by indigenous and foreign players, explore the associated industries engaged in manufacturing world class processing facilities, packaging and printing, storage (cold chain) and transportation (logistics).
Exhibitors will showcase their products on different varieties of ice-cream, manufacture furnishings for ice-cream, packaging, printing and processing facilities, flavours, fragrance, additives and supplement, storage and transportation equipment and new technology finished products
Visitors will include Ice-cream producers, purchasers (hotels and restaurant owners), wholesalers, retailers, distributors and end users
