The processed food industry is one of the largest in India. It is ranked fifth in terms of export, expected growth, production and consumption. As a matter of fact, increasing incomes are accompanied by changes to our food habits. The government, on its part, has formulated and implemented several plans and schemes to provide financial assistance, initially to set up food processing units and later to modernise as well. There is excellent support with regard to infrastructure, research and human resource development, in addition to other promotional aspects, to encourage the food processing industry.
