Agriculture and Food Processing Committee

Agriculture is the mainstay of the majority of the Indian population. The sector contributes approximately 16% to the total GDP and provides employment to nearly 60% of the population. With the food processing industry acting as the perfect catalyst, India’s contribution to world food trade is increasing every year. According to the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), the Indian food processing industry has cumulatively attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) equity inflow of about US$ 8.57 billion between April 2000 and December 2018. The committee aims to align itself with the government’s twin objectives of doubling farmer’s income and reducing food wastage which in turn will ensure more food for the growing population. This committee through committee meetings, policy advocacy, knowledge sharing sessions / expert led sessions & publications aims to become a credible voice in the Agri & Food processing sector by way of meaningful and
engaging initiatives.
