Cereal Processing and Cereal Based Foods (Rice, Dal, Pulses, Oat, and Wheat), Sugar and Value Added Products
Profitable Food Grain and Pulses Processing Business
We are dependent on different plants as one of the food sources but amongst them, since ancient time’s cereals are proven to be the most important. For thousands of years, the cereal grain is representative of the principal components of the human diet. Although it is a complex procedure still in the food production chain, cereal processing consists of a vital part. There are various benefits of cereal grains and are also very important for our daily diet. In a comparison of other crops, cereals can grow in adverse environments and bad soil conditions while providing more yield. After harvesting, the storage conditions may influence the nutritional value of cereals but as cereals are stable food with low moisture content, it can be stored for a longer period without affecting the nutritional value.
The production of food grains comprises wheat, rice, pulses, and other cereals. Besides, the Ministry of Agriculture has increased the projection of rice output to 117.47 million tons from 116.48 million tonnes in the year 2018-2019. Additionally, it has also increased cereal output from 263.14 million tons to 268.93 million tonnes. Moreover, the production of wheat has been on the rise on a year to year basis. India produced 103.60 million tons of wheat in the previous year.
Pulse Crop Trends in India
Pulses are the crops that constitute a very important part of the Indian diet as approx. 43% of all Indians are vegetarians hence for them pulses serve as a protein source. Chickpeas were considered the largest crops in India having a productive value of 9,075.0 tons in the year 2017, With a CAGR of 0.7 % from 8,832.5 tons produced in the year 2016. The pigeon pea crops attained the highest CAGR with production increasing by 12.7% from the year 2015 to 2019, whereas dry peas decreased in production by a CAGR of -3.4%.
Globally, India holds the largest market with imports of pulses valued at the US $1.1 billion in the year 2017, despite the highest decrease in the growth of -20.6% from the year 2014 to 2018 as imports were valued at the US $2.7 billion in the year 2014. Subsequently, attained the highest market share registering 12.7% in the year 2018.
India ranks the world’s largest producer of millets and the second-largest producer of wheat, rice, and pulses. The largest food grain production of 259.32 million tons was recorded in the year 2011-2012. The cereals other than rice and pulse contributed 1 kg per person in rural areas of India and 0.8 kg per person monthly in urban India in the year 2011-2012. The consumption of all food grains per person in rural areas is recorded to decline from 15.3 kg monthly by the year 2050. It has been anticipated that the total demand for food grain will increase from 16.7 to 19.9 kg per month over the next 50 years because of increased demand for feed grain. The total demand for grain will increase from 201 million tons in 2000 to about 291 and 377 million tons by 2025 and 2050, respectively.
