  13. 13. 1. India Food Processing Industry Outlook to 2025 INDUSTRY OVERVIEW India is the world’s second largest food producer with the potential to be the biggest, backed by its food and agricultural sector, yet barely 2.2% of fruits and vegetables are processed with almost a total of 37,175 registered food processing units1 . The challenges of insufficient infrastructure are leading to wastage and undue advantages for the middlemen, at the cost of farmers’ remuneration. The total food production in India is likely to double in the next 10 years, an expansive agricultural sector, copious livestock, and cost efficacies will enable India to swiftly emerge as a sourcing hub for processed food. It is expected that in the coming years the food processing sector will be able to bridge the gap between farmers and consumers. Government of India has declared development of the food processing industry as a priority and plans to invest in this sector in the near future. Looking at this massive opportunity and government initiative to develop food processing, the sector has fetched FDI inflows (Foreign Direct Investment) of INR 25 Billion (US$ 416.6 Million) till January in FY 20152 . Almost 70% of the sector is dominated by the unorganized and small-scale players, indicating the huge potential inherent in the Indian food processing sector. The Indian food processing sector is growing at an average rate of 12.5% per annum and it is anticipated that the industry will transcend an INR 30,600 Billion (US$ 510 Billion) mark by 2025 owing to the rise in middle class income, changing urban lifestyle and modern retail trade. Moreover, advancements on the technology front, people seeking more packaged and nutritional food products with variety, and limited time availability due to fast paced life has provided further tailwind to the food processing industry. The Indian food processing industry accounts for 32% of the country’s total food market, 14% of manufacturing GDP, 13% of India’s exports and 6% of total industrial investment. In the FY2016, the total budget allocation for the food processing industry is INR 4.87 Billion (US$ 81.16 Million). 2012 2015e 2020f 2025f CAGR 12.5% Figure:1-1 India - Food Processing Industry (Billion INR), 2012, 2015, 2020 & 2025 Source: ICAR, RNCOS Note: f = RNCOS Forecast 1 Annual Survey of Industries 2 Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion 11640 16500 30600 6637 14 Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector
  14. 14. INDUSTRY DRIVERSS • India being an agro-based economy has abundant resources to support the flourishing food processing industry • Globally, India ranks first in milk production and second in the production of fruit and vegetables • Increasing interest for ready-to-eat food products among young generation and working class • Tier-I and Tier-II cities exhibiting high demand with rising disposable income • Consumers ready to experiment with unique processed food offerings • Regional food processing players are tapping the native market • Currently, 25 projects are under implementation. Out of these, 21 Mega Food Parks have been accorded final approval and are at various stages of implementation, while 4 Mega Food Parks are progressing towards meeting the conditions for final approval. • National program, “Make-in-India” creating prospects for manufacturing industries The Indian food processing market was close to INR 4,000 Billion (US$ 66.6 Billion) in 2014. The organized sector occupied 25% of the market, and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 16% during 2014-2020. Dairy sector accounted for the largest share i.e. 33% in the Indian food processing market, followed by Grains and Convenience foods at 10% each. It is expected that Convenience Foods will exhibit an increase of 4% in share by 2020 owing to its increasing penetration among the newer generation.

  15. 15. 2. Chhattisgarh Food Processing Industry Chhattisgarh is one of the major states that have potential for the food processing industry. The main locations for the existing food processing units are Bilaspur, Raipur, Raigarh, Durg and Dhamtari. The Chhattisgarh state government is taking keen interest to develop its food processing industry, by providing high-tech farming equipments to farmers and subsidy to investors. Moreover, being a power surplus state, Chhattisgarh makes a viable option for setting up food processing unit. Therefore, based on the above factors, it is expected that with abundance of variety of crops, government initiatives, and technological advancements, growth will be fuelled for the state’s food processing industry. The state government is in process to develop food processing parks in PPP (Public Private Partnership) mode. The government has identified 10 production clusters for setting up the processing plants.The state government has also established 25 production units for value added services such as grading, processing, waxing, extraction and distillation. These units include four cashew processing units, one banana grading and waxing plant, one fruit & vegetable grading unit, four grading units for tomato and potato, 12 distillation units for aromatic crops, and three aloe vera juice/gel extraction units. Apart from government initiatives, many private sector companies are also investing in the Chhattisgarh’s food processing sector. Recently, over half-a-dozen companies had expressed interest to invest in the food processing sector of Chhattisgarh. Following are the five major production clusters which have been identified based on the production and presence of cold chain storage units in the mentioned districts. KEY HIGHLIGHTS • Chhattisgarh is amongst the only five states in India to grow faster (Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP), 8.4%) than the national average (7.9%) during the 11th plan (2007-2011). • State government is setting up a 150 Hectare mega food processing park at Dhamtari in Raipur district. • Apart from that, two other private mega food parks i.e. Indus Best Mega Food Park and Raipur Mega Food Park are being set up in Raipur and Bemetara respectively. • MoFPI has so far sanctioned two cold chain projects in district Raipur under its “Scheme for Cold Chain, Value Addition and Preservation Infrastructure.” Source: RNCOS Horticulture/Agriculture Major Districts Banana Production Korba, Janjgir Champa, Baloda Bazar, Mahasamund, Bilaspur, Mungeli, Raipur Mango Production Bilaspur, Koriya, Korba Guava Production Koriya, Korba, Bilaspur Papaya Production Bilaspur, Mungeli, Bemetara, Baloda Bazar Maize Production Koriya, Surajpur, Korba, Dhamtari, Gariaband Table 2-1: Agriculture Production in Major Districts by Food Type 16 Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector

  28. 28. 5. Upcoming Mega Food Parks The concept of food parks has been gaining momentum in the past few years. The food processing industry is recording new levels with reduction in resource wastage, lesser costs, government incentives and supportive financial benefits. Thus, three agro-food parks are being developed in Chhattisgarh to promote medium and small- scale units. Presently, there are three food parks in the state approved by the Ministry of Food Processing Industries. Two of them are under private development and one is in Dhamtari which is a state government project. They have all acquired the necessary sanctions and approvals from both Central and State governments. The Chhattisgarh government has received 162 Food Processing proposals and has sanctioned 141 of them. It has also sanctioned grants of INR 279.6 Million (US$ 4.7 Million) towards food processing and received grants worth INR 133.3 Million (US$ 2.2 Million). The proposed food processing park will have common facilities such as auditorium, canteen, fire-station, medical facilities, logistic hub, weigh bridge, substation, cold storage, warehouse, quality control laboratory and R&D unit. 5.1 Indus Best Mega Food Park Indus Best Mega Food Park is planning to develop a mega food park at the Bemta and Sarora villages, Tilda taluka in Raipur district of Chhattisgarh. The mega food park will be developed over 100 Acres with an investment of INR 1.25 Billion (US$ 20.8 Million). Of the total project cost, around INR 500 Million (US$ 8.3 Million) will be funded by MOFPI (Ministry of Food Processing Industry) and the remaining INR 745 Million (US$ 12.4 Million) through proposed investment by promoters (including bank loan). Indus Best Mega Food Park has already got all the approvals and has also appointed the IL&FS Infrastructure Development Corporation as consultant for the project. 5.2 Raipur Mega Food Park Raipur Mega Food Park is developing a mega food park in Village Neonara, Tehsil Berla, and District Bemetara over an area of 100 Acres land. The mega food park is under construction with an investment of INR 1.26 Billion (US$ 21 Million). Of the total project cost, around INR 500 Million (US$ 8.3 Million) will be funded through MOFPI (Ministry of Food Processing Industry) and the remaining INR 761.2 Million (US$ 12.68 Million) from proposed investment by the promoters (including bank loan). 5.3 Dhamtari Mega Food Park The Chhattisgarh Government is in the process of establishing a ‘Mega Food Park’ in Dhamtari district of the state. It will be in Kurud Village of the district with a proposal to be spread over an area of 150 Hectare land with total investment catching up to INR 1.5 Billion (US$ 25 Million).The construction work for the Mega Food Park would commence by September or October of 2015. The Scheme has a cluster based approach based on a hub and spokes model. It includes creation of infrastructure for primary processing and storage near the farm in the form of Primary Processing Centres (PPCs), Collection Centres (CCs), common facilities and infrastructure enabled at the Central Processing Centre (CPC). 29Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector
  29. 29. 30 Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector 6. Regulatory Framework for Food Processing Industry The Chhattisgarh government has been taking various steps to promote food processing industry in the state. The agricultural base of the state is very strong both in food grains and fruit & vegetable production; still the existing processing scale is limited. According to the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, Raman Singh, agricultural surplus should be used for value addition and MSMEs can play a greater role in this endeavour. The Ministry has already mapped Chhattisgarh to see which commodity is in surplus, and the idea is to create cold chains and storage capacities, adding value at the local level. Moreover, various benefits have been announced to promote industrial growth under “Industrial Promotion Policy 2014” and “Agro & Food Processing Policy 2012” in Chhattisgarh. As defined by Government of India, industries based on food processing and agriculture have been classified as priority in Chhattisgarh Industrial Policy 2014- 2019. AGRO & FOOD PROCESSING INDUSTRIES POLICY-2012 Strategies: • To establish cluster based Agro & Food Processing small industrial areas in consonance with the industrial policy of the state • Entrepreneurship development and skill development programmes shall be organized in the field of food processing • Opening degree and diploma courses in the technical sector of food processing and participation of the industries of the state shall be ensured in the national seminars/workshops and Trade Fare programmes • Food Processing Training Centre shall be established • Cluster approach shall be adopted for improvement of horticulture crops in the state • To ensure availability of the improved seeds and plants easily • To ensure the establishment of cold storage, cold chain and warehouse at district and tehsil level, so that farmers get the suitable price of horticulture crops • To encourage use of improved irrigation system for assured production of horticulture crops • To provide intensive training to the farmers for use of scientific methods for enhanced production of horticulture crops Objectives: • Value addition of the agriculture produce, fruits & vegetables and pulses & oilseeds in the state • Providing opportunities for provision of secured storage for agricultural produce, pulses & oilseeds and fruits and vegetables • Ensure better price of agriculture produce to the farmers of the state • Reduction in cost of production of the agro and food processing products and to make its marketing easy • Ensure availability of the food materials to the public of the state of good quality at justified prices • To encourage farmers of the state to diversify for farming of fruits & vegetables and other cash horticulture crops as alternatives of paddy by development of the Agro & Food Processing Industries

  31. 31. 32 Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector 7. Industry Roadblocks 7.1 Inadequate Industrial Infrastructure One of the key challenges for the Chhattisgarh food processing industry is inadequate industrial infrastructure. With changing consumption patterns, especially in urban areas, demand for processed food is increasing. This is further drawing foreign investments into the sector. But the infrastructure related to food processing like cold chains, preservation chambers, transportation systems and warehouses are very limited in the state. In order to improve the food processing capacity of the state, there is an urgent need to invest and develop proper industrial infrastructures to provide a backbone to the food processing industry of Chhattisgarh. For example; there is only 1.5% of India’s total cold storage units present in Chhattisgarh. Cold storage having temperature (minus 20°) is needed for concentrated food products, which is not available in Chhattisgarh. 7.2 Lack of Awareness for Improved Quality Farming Most of the traditionally grown fruits and vegetables are normally meant for direct consumption as they are not fit for processing quality wise. This is due to lack of awareness among the producers regarding quality farming. So there is need for introduction of new seeds in the raw material catchment areas, soil testing to understand for which kind of crop the soil is more beneficial, and adoption of contract farming which is often unsuccessful without government endorsement. So to overcome this challenge it is necessary that the producers be made aware regarding the concept of quality farming inducing necessary government support. 7.3 Insufficient Research & Development Centres In Chhattisgarh, the Research & Development (R&D) facilities for the agricultural sector are presently ineffective. There is an urgent situation for more agricultural colleges to be set up in the state with proper R&D facilities. R&D facilities will do the necessary research for hybrid seeds, pesticides, insecticides, crop rotation etc.The agriculture scientists will facilitate farmers with their findings and educate them to use the productive land accordingly.These initiatives should be taken up by the government to promote the state’s agricultural sector.
  32. 32. 8. Food Processing Industry – Future Prospects • Conception of Food Testing Facilities: Since a lot of attention is given to quality of food, food testing is one of the major avenues where the potential is still untapped. As India moves forward towards adopting international standards of food processing and other related activities, food testing laboratories come into play as stringent measures are needed to be adopted for approving food items fit for human consumption. • Encouraging Food Processing in Upcoming Food Parks: Chhattisgarh is quite rich in its agriculture and horticulture production amongst which mango, papaya, banana, guava and maize are found in abundance. Also, most of these crops are found in large quantities in districts around various upcoming food parks. Hence, it is recommended that the state government should actively work towards improving the processing of potential processed food opportunities in products like fruit drinks, pickles, fruit pulp, corn starch, corn flakes, fruit jelly, fruit puree, corn-based convenience food items, etc in the food parks.The improvement can be brought about by providing few additional incentives to the upcoming units. • Special Schemes for New Entrepreneurs: Government has been very supportive towards the industrial units in the state, giving special incentives to food processing units. Various incentives like Reimbursement Concession in Value Added Tax and Central Sales Tax, Electrical Duty exemption, Mandi Tax exemption, Facility on Contract Farming, among others are provided by the government. As Chhattisgarh’s food processing industry mainly consists of SMEs, few special incentives and relaxations for the entrepreneurs will give further push to the industry. • Need for Nodal Agency: A central or nodal organization to facilitate and connect the investor, entrepreneur, and other stakeholders is one of the key recommendations for promoting the food processing industry in Chhattisgarh.The existence of such an organization would bring clarity in procedures & policies between the industrial unit and investor. It will also bring all the stakeholders on the same platform thereby reducing the communication gap and any kind of misinterpretation of facts. Moreover, it will be a cost and time effective move to manage the resources of upcoming food processing units in the state. • Awareness for Quality Farming: The Chhattisgarh food processing industry is in need of accelerated R&D and modern technology adoptions in agriculture. There is a major need of focused programs for improving productivity, technology access, meeting the food safety standards, and new product developments for competitive edge and consumer needs. All these measures will increase output and subdue wastage and nutrition losses throughout the production and processing stages. • Establishment of Robust Cold Chain/Supply Chain Network: Establishing a firm and sound logistics framework is imperative to curtail the post-harvest losses, particularly of perishables. The state government needs to devise novel strategies, and work closely with third party cold chain operators to develop better cold storage systems, ensuring better conditions of warehouses by employing sophisticated refrigerated transportation systems to avoid food wastage. • Value Added Products at Different Levels: The increasing demand for processed food, like fruit-based beverages, pulps, syrups, chocolates, squashes, corn starch, corn flakes, dehydrated fruits & vegetables, among others, creates a large growth area for the food processing units in the state. Increase in disposable incomes and improving lifestyles have a visible impact on the consumption pattern of the population . 33Chhattisgarh: An Investment Opportunity in Food Processing Sector
