Commenting on the importance of conducting such an event, a CII official said: “India continued to be one of the top producers in number of food grains, fruits, dairy products and poultry & meat products. At the same time, we lag behind most of the developed countries and also some of the developing Southeast Asian countries in terms of processing and value addition. This is resulting in lower returns on investments, very high wastage (up to 28% in some cases) and lower shelf life. Hence it is essential to increase the awareness on the importance of food processing and packaging. FOODPRO exhibition will help businesses to work towards adding value to processed foods, reduce wasteges and increase shelf life.”
To add value to the show and focus of the growing food sector, CII has added two more verticals - ColdStoRe and T-Food - as concurrent shows to Foodpro2017.
ColdStoRe will focus on the complete cold chain right from primary cold storage facility for food grains and fruits at Farm Level to high end cold storage for meat and food products including the important sector of Cold / Refrigerated Transportation.
Exhibitors profile will include companies that provide equipment, tools, and technologies that support the infrastructure and operations of the cold chain from design to build & operate. The focus will also be on third-party cold storage and refrigeration logistics and all forms of refrigerated transportation, Import/export facilities and services.
T-Food, a traditional food festival will try to bring the awareness about the traditional and local foods. This show will showcase the processed traditional food in healthy way, newer recipes of cooking traditional foods and will provide an opportunity to entrepreneurs to show case the developments in processing of traditional food.
