About the Event...

India being one of the fastest growing economy of the world and with fast evolving business and regulatory environment, the food processing sector has immense potential to offer for growth. While offering aplenty of prospects, India has a bright potential to emerge as an outsourcing hub in forthcoming years. Even the global food processing industry looks at India as a recharged economy, with foreign investors beginning to take notice of India as the land of opportunities.

As we are aware, India comes across as a thriving under-penetrated consumer driven market for exponential growth with increasing interest of investors. Internet penetration and its increasing importance are driving most of the businesses.

In this ecosystem, Digitalization has been revolutionizing the food industries by offering direct engagement with the consumers and opening new revenue streams. The massive power of digitalization provides us with the great opportunities and great risks which contribute in changing business models daily.

Recognizing the footprint that digitalization holds in the food marketing space and acting as a pillar for exponential growth, the theme for this year convention is ‘Capitalizing Food Processing in the Digitalization era’.
