The three-day WFI 2023 attracted 1,200 exhibitors, including 146 global companies, and ministerial-level delegations from 19 countries and territories. Over 50 workshops with over 200 speakers will be held within the framework of the event.
According to Anita Praveen, Secretary, Food Processing Industries, Government of India, global demand for processed foods is rising at a steady 4% due to increased urbanization, higher incomes, and convenience food preferences.
With its large population, increasing income levels, and strong economic growth, India is a promising investment destination, with its food processing industry shining as one of the most reliable sectors. As India marches towards becoming a $5 trillion economy, the food processing industry is poised to play a pivotal role.
