  3. 3. 1. Executive summary India is the world’s second largest producer of food next to China and has the potential of being the biggest in the World. Domestically, the spending on food and food products amounts to nearly 21% of the gross domestic product of the country and constitutes the largest portion of the Indian consumer spending more than a 31% share of wallet. Going forward, the Indian domestic food market is expected to grow by nearly 40% of the current market size by 2015, to touch US $258 billion by 2015. Some of the key measures undertaken by the Government include: amendment of the agriculture produce marketing committee act (APMC Act), rationalization of food laws, implementation of the national horticulture mission etc. The government has also outlined a plan to address the low scale of processing activity in the country by setting up the mega food parks, with integrated facilities for procurement, processing, storage and transport. To promote private sector activity and invite foreign investments in the sector the Government allows 100% FDI in the food processing & cold chain infrastructure. The recent budget has announced several policy measures, especially for the cold chain infrastructure, to encourage private sector activity across the entire value chain. A well developed food processing industry is expected to increase farm gate prices, reduce wastages, ensure value addition, promote crop diversification, generate employment opportunities as well as export earnings. This publication gives readers an opportunity to understand food processing industry in India better. It highlights various sectors and subsectors of the Indian food processing industry and also provides with the status of each sub sector independently.

  15. 15. 5. Factors impacting growth of food production There are restrictions about the size of land holding in the name of a single entity — regulations are dependent upon individual state policy. Holdings have become fragmented as the farms are divided through inheritance. Small operations make investments in automation unviable and also complicate coordination and integration between farmers, processors and the end consumer. 1. Fragmented land holding patterns An imbalance in the usage of fertilizers has resulted in the drop of fertilizer efficiency over the years from 17.1 in 1980 to 6.5 in 2000. The high dependence on labor for agricultural activity has affected the speed of technology adoption. In spite of efforts by the government in subsidizing new technology adoption, challenges in educating the farmers of their benefits has affected their adoption. Poor maintenance of natural resources and high dependence on monsoon which is not consistently favorable. 2. Low labor productivity with low adoption of technology Indian Food Processing Industry – A Synopsis The poor transport and storage infrastructure, along with use of labor for post harvest processing affects the farm productivity by reducing the quantity available for sale. The lack of credit access to farmers limits the working capital available, hindering investments in technology and high yielding inputs. Wastage due to post harvest/pre sale transport, processing and storage contributes to a loss of nearly 2.3% of the total produce quantity. 3. Inadequate support infrastructure There are several constraints of land availability for agriculture due to competing pressures from urbanization, constructions and industrialization. Each region has its own limitations for impacting agricultural productivity like soil erosion, floods etc. Land under cultivation is stagnant and yield growth is largely flat across major categories due to low productivity from agriculture. Other factors like non-availability of electricity, high population growth, poor road and communication infrastructure, etc. 4. Specific factors impacting productivity Page 15

  17. 17. 7. Some of the key business opportunities in food processing infrastructure Increase in demand for value added tertiary processed products especially frozen food will also drive the need for improved warehousing and cold storage facilities. The demand for cold chain infrastructure is set to increase with modern trade expected to grow at 2025% and the emergence of large Indian and international players in the food chain. In spite of being one of the worlds leading producers of food there is lack of proper storage and organized cold chain facilities, which leads to large scale wastages. Warehousing facilities Indian Food Processing Industry – A Synopsis Managing and providing common infrastructure for fees, that is required by a group of food processing small scale industries like common machineries, technology etc. which otherwise may not be affordable by individual processor. Considering this gap, companies , especially international companies present in Indian manage these processes in house with minimal intervention from third parties. There is currently a large gap in terms of availability of value added services like tagging, repacking, promotion packing, etc. Value added services There is a large opportunity in the sector as the Indian logistics space is currently dominated by unorganized players who provide very basic services with a very low use of technology. The use of information technology to integrate the point of sale systems with delivery chain to aid inventory management and forecasting is minimal. There is a growing need among retailers and manufacturers to obtain real time data to ensure proper order planning, stocking and manufacturing plans. Supply chain management Page 17
