The food processing industry of India is one of the largest in the world in terms of manufacture, use, export, and development.  The sector has immense potential to contribute to growth and employment opportunities of the country.

In the beginning, the food processing industry was limited to procedures of food preservation and packaging that involved drying, salting, and pickling. However, in the last few years, with advancement in technology, the scope of the sector has grown tremendously. The industry now also includes ready-to-eat food items, frozen fruit and vegetable products, and seafood and meat products. The storage, processing, preservation, and transportation of various food items have given rise to many irradiation facilities, cold storage facilities, and packaging centers.

Importance of Food Processing

All the raw food materials are processed to improve their palatability, nutritional value and shelf-life.

1) Preservation for later consumption or sale to fetch better price

2) Removal of inedible portions

3) Destruction or removal of harmful substances

4) Conversion to forms desired by the consumer and

5) Subdivision into food ingredients.

Mega Food Parks Scheme: It aims at providing a mechanism to link agricultural production to the market by bringing together farmers, processors and retailers to maximise value addition, minimising wastage, increasing farmers’ income and creating employment opportunities particularly in the rural sector. A Mega Food Park entails an area of a minimum of 50 acres and works in a cluster based approach based on a hub and spokes model.

Scheme of Cold Chain, Value Addition and Preservation Infrastructure: The objective of the scheme is to provide integrated cold chain and preservation infrastructure facilities, without any break, from the farm gate to the consumer. It covers pre-cooling facilities at production sites, reefer vans, mobile cooling units as well as value addition centres.

Modernisation of Abattoirs scheme: The main objective of the Scheme is a creation of processing and preservation capacities and modernisation and expansion of existing food processing units with a view to increasing the level of processing, value addition leading to reduction of wastage.

Make In India: As part of the Make In India campaign, food processing sector was identified as one of the 25 focus areas. Accordingly, the policy ecosystem has been revamped to attract financial, technological and human resources into the sector. Allowing 100% FDI through automatic route into this sector is also a significant step in this direction.

Food Processing Fund: A special fund in the NABARD worth Rs. 2,000 crore, designated as the Food Processing Fund, was set up in the FY 2014-15 for providing affordable credit to food processing units in Mega & Designated Food Parks.
