India is now a dominant global player in the modern food trade. It has the pride of being the 'Land of Origin' of an assortment of food crops and processed products that have a significant impact on the global demand and supply.
India is increasingly becoming a growing market to supply raw material to the world, in particular the agricultural products and those related to the food processing sector. A case in point is the latest decision by China to purchase basmati rice from India.
The country is the top global producer of meat, milk, castor seeds, sesame, mango, banana, chickpeas and is among the top producers globally for rice, wheat, sugarcane, tea, spices, onion, potatoes and many others. With the new agri-export policy, the Indian F&B export is expected to grow from $ 32 billion to $ 70 billion in next couple of years. UNI JPG SHK2042
