Sustainability of food industry is a critical function impacting agri-revenues, saving of perishables, employment generation, consumer fulfillment, global trade, technological advancement, manpower skilling and GDP. It is essential to look at the challenges involved in the process and find solutions to ensure the viability and growth of the sector.
In this context, AIFPA (All India Food Processors' Association) along with Koelnmesse YA Tradefair is organizing a Seminar on "Sustainability of Food Industry: Challenges & Solutions" on 15th September 2022 at Hall No. 1, Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai, coinciding with leading technology fair ANUTEC- International FoodTec India and PackEx India 2022.
The 'National Seminar' focuses on technical and policy requirements which can elevate the Indian food industry to global benchmarks giving us our due share in the world food trade as a leading producer of most agri-commodities. The occasion of the seminar could not have been any better than Koelnmesse International Exhibitions, planned for 14 to 16 September 2022 at Bombay Exhibition Center, Mumbai, where all expert minds come together.
