Technological Advancements

Emerging food technologies mark a shift towards sustainable and personalized food choices. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic had a compelling impact of accelerating the adoption of technologies all through the food value chain.

Food producers are digitizing their production floors with robotics, eCommerce, and digital food-management tools. Restaurants are also employing robots for hospitality and cooking, as well as promoting eCommerce. The food industry is tackling the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 situation, towards efficient, transparent, and sustainable operations.


For the growth of the food processing industry, the biggest challenge faced due to dominance of unorganized players, who approximately contribute to 80% of the industry’s volume. The main challenges are:

  • Unavailability of a processable quality and quantity of fruit and vegetables
  • Low productivity of agri products
  • Poor processing conversion – low technology base and low automation
  • High operating costs due to small-scale operations

Potential Sector

India’s vast agricultural resources alone create huge potential for investments in its food processing and equipment industry. The food processing industry is one of the largest industries operating in India that holds scope for value added processing covering fruit and vegetables; spices; meat and poultry; milk and milk products, fisheries, plantation, grain processing and other consumer product groups like confectionery, chocolates and cocoa products soya-based products, mineral water, high protein foods etc.

With online food delivery players like FoodPanda, Zomato, TinyOwl and Swiggy building scale through partnerships, the organized food business has a huge potential and a promising future.

Government Support

The Government’s focus towards the Food Processing Industry as a priority sector is expected to ensure policies to support investments, to attract more FDI and to have double digit growth. Mega Food Parks promote processing facilities in a big way. With the right infrastructure, food processing units will be able to provide a large improvement in the domestic consumption. In order to promote food processing industries, increase level of processing and exploit the potential of domestic and international market for processed food products, Vision Document-2015 was prepared by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries.

The document envisages trebling the size of investment in the processed food sector by increasing the level of processing of perishables from 6 per cent to 20 per cent, value addition from 20 per cent to 35 per cent and share in global food trade from 1.5 per cent to 3 per cent by 2015. According to the Ministry, an investment of Rs 100,000 crore (US$ 14.67 billion) would be required in 2015 to achieve these targets.

The Government of India has also relaxed foreign direct investment (FDI) norms for the sector, allowing up to 100 per cent FDI in food product e-commerce through automatic route. Indian Food Processing Industry has seen significant growth and changes over the past few years, driven by changing trends in markets, consumer segments and regulations. These trends in the future are expected to shape the demand for value added products in India.

As per the PM, India’s Food Processing Industry is expected to increase almost five-fold in next 10 years. India, having access to a vast pool of natural resources and growing technical knowledge base, has strong comparative advantages over other nations in this industry. The Govt. has been approving proposals for joint ventures, foreign collaboration, industrial licenses and 100% EOUs envisaging an investment of Rs. 19,100 crores (US$ 4.80 billion) during the same period.

World’s well established brands in food segment are readily available in India markets like Unilever food products from USA, Agnesi Pasta from Italy, Kikkoman sauces from Japan, Olicoop Spanish Olives, Ong’s oriental food & sauces from Singapore / China, Chocolates & confectionery from Germany, Salad dressings, Canned seafood & vegetables from Australia, baby accessories from Taiwan, Mexican food, corn and Thai products and so on, list is endless.

The Ministry of Agriculture is aiming to double the production of all food crops through National Food Security Mission, NHM, HMNEHS & NHB and disseminating the latest practices of production and post harvest care. The need of the hour in India is increased productivity and building of an effective supply chain to ensure that what is produced in the farm reaches the consumer in good shape. Greater use of machinery has, therefore, become necessary in India to overcome the technical constraints in enhancing production and productivity.

As a result, India is emerging as one of the hottest destinations not only for Food Processing and Packaging Machinery & Equipment imports from European and South East Asian Countries but also for Agro-Food products from international suppliers.
