25/09/2015: Indian Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal launches skills training program
A special skills training program was launched by Ms Harsimrat Kaur Badal, the Union Minister for Food Processing Industries under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) at the Assocom Institute of Bakery Technology & Management (AIBTM), via video conferencing.

Raj Kapoor, Managing Director, AIBTM said, "The bakery industry is one of the largest among the processed food industries in India, which is estimated at US$200 billion".

Food Processing Industries also have a huge role in efficient utilisation of agricultural products therefore we are planning to launch skill training to help in preparing base for all the grain based businesses, and associated field.

Ms Harsimrat Kaur Badal, the Union Minister for Food Processing Industries, said that a bakery business is a lucrative endeavour which can be set up with a relatively smaller capital outlay. In order to remain a market leader, the Indian bakery industry needs skills training to be widely promoted throughout the country. Skills training is a must to support the rapid growth in demand for bakery products, and this program would definitely boost the industry.

The Assocom Institute of Bakery Technology & Management (AIBTM) was set up three years ago, with the backing of foundations in the USA, South Korea, Canada and Australia. This year AIBTM plans to train over two thousand persons associated with the bakery industry through different centres operated by the institute.
