The processed food industry is poised for huge growth, and increasingly enhances its contribution to world food trade every year. The Government’s efforts in reaching out to the foreign investors have resulted in renewed interest in Indian processed food sector and they are considering India as a promising destination for their investment. Internally, the food sector is a high‐growth and high‐profit sector due to changing socio economic factors and our potential in agriculture. Food and grocery account for around 31 percent of India’s consumption basket. The Indian food and grocery market is the world’s sixth largest. The Indian food retail market is expected to reach Rs. 61 lakh crore (US$ 915 billion) by 2020.

There is a strong linkage between the nation’s growth rate, productivity, industry prosperity and the wellbeing of its population. This is particularly important for us as we are the young nation of the world. Ironically, the country is increasingly facing the challenge of malnutrition and lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, cardio vascular diseases etc., particularly affecting the young adults and it is more than often linked to the diet. India is a young nation and can become a power to reckon with only if its youth are healthy and productive. Thus there is a simultaneous need to ensure that the food choice made available to the consumers is not only hygienic and safe but also nutritious.

The government is doing its part in formulating standards and regulating the industry to ensure safe, hygienic and nutritious food. However it is pertinent on part of all stakeholders – farmer, research, industry and government ‐ to voluntarily take up the responsibility of making India a healthy nation by also making nutritious choices available to the consumers. To deliberate on the imperative concerns with respect to the production and processing of Safe and Nutritious Food along the food value chain from the farm to fork, we are organizing the next edition of our annual event – India Farm 2 Fork ‐ an international Conference & Exhibition ‐ involving all the stakeholders, with the theme – “Producing Food Smartly ‐ Safe, Hygienic & Nutritious Food” ‐ at Shangri‐La's Eros Hotel, New Delhi New Delhi. Where in Krishi Jagran, Agriculture World and krishijagran.com are the Media Partner.
