Indus Food, an international exhibition of processed food and beverages, has begun to succeed in its objective. It is an effort that between April and December last year, 20 percent more agricultural and processed food products were exported as compared to a year ago. It is noteworthy that most of the countries of the world including India have spent the last year under the shadow of Corona.
Vivek Agarwal, chairman of the F&B Committee of the Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI), an organization promoting the export of processed food, also believes that the last year was very difficult. He says that everyone is going through difficult times. But, he is happy that despite all the challenges, our industry has stood the ground and is standing stronger than ever. India has registered a growth of 20 percent in the export of Agri and Processed Food Products during April-December 2021-22 over the same period of 2020-21.
Just got orders worth about one billion dollars
He told that orders worth about one billion dollars have been received at the fifth Indus Food Exhibition held in Greater Noida last week. All these orders are in the processed food and beverage segment only. This figure would increase but when it was organized, at that time the figures of corona in Delhi NCR were increasing rapidly. Due to this, strictness had also increased in Delhi. Therefore, important buyers could not come from United Kingdom, Europe, America etc.
The event was held in Greater Noida
The fifth IndusFood 2022 event was held at India Exposition Mart, Greater Noida from January 8 to 10. The exhibition area of around 18,000 square meters witnessed the participation of 350 Indian exporters of Indian branded products including food & beverages, agricultural commodities, processed value added products, products of Indian origin. The three-day event saw interaction with over 800 buyers (importers, large supermarket and retail chains, distributors, etc.) from over 60 countries.
