03/08/2017: India's major grain milling industry event

GrainTech India has strong support from prominent Indian agri and food organisations, adding strength and significance to the event. Among the numerous organisations supporting the exhibition are The Solvent Extractors' Association of India, All India Food Processors' Association, Coffee Board, Roller Flour Mills Federation of India, Spices Board India, The Soybean Processors' Association of India, All India Rice Exporters' Association, Indian Oilseeds and Produce Export Promotion Council, CLFMA of India, and Indian Biscuits Manufacturers' Association etc.

Indian agriculture is at present going through critical times. On the one hand, relying on the strength of Green Revolution strategy and having emerged as an exporter of grains and food products, the government is eager to pass a Food Security law to ensure accessibility of food grains to every individual in the country.

On the other hand, the weaknesses in the realisation of the strategy are showing up in a glaring manner. One such instance is the huge losses of procured food grains for want of appropriate storage facilities. The necessity is to enhance the production of grains and build a valuable supply chain to make certain what is produced in the farm reaches the consumer in good shape.

In fact, what is crucial is to plug every ambiguity in the food production and distribution system, which means use of effective available technology and building of modern storage system. As per trade sources, India wastes food grains worth huge amounts every year because of weaknesses in storage system & techniques and deficiencies in supply chain. It is inopportune in a country where a significant section of the population goes to bed hungry.

India has over 5000 Rice mills, 1200 Flour milling plants in organised sector apart from over 2000 in small scale, 200 Soybean plants, 2000 Spices crushing plants, 2000 Pulses mills, 2000 Oilseeds crushing units, 1000 Feed Units, 100 Bio-fuel and energy projects, 1000 Coffee plants etc., which are looking for innovative and improved technology to upgrade their manufacturing, processing, packaging line. GrainTech India 2017 will seek to reduce the technological gap existing in processing and supply chain.

To feed increasing domestic demand and also to achieve the export targets of food products, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Food Processing Industry and Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) under the Ministry of Commerce are investing a ample share of the budget to promote technological up-gradation and value addition in all segments of rice, wheat, pulses, oilseeds, spices, dairy & feed, and all other food sectors. The event will join hands with the government to support its efforts.

The last edition of GrainTech India 2016 had the participation from over 30 countries around the world such as Turkey, Poland, France, Italy, UK, China, USA, Holland, Spain, Japan, South Africa, New Zealand, Israel, Taiwan, Switzerland, Germany, Thailand, Russia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Oman, Iran, Brazil and UAE etc., who displayed their comprehensive range of products and technologies in the grain industry. This year we are expecting more countries to come to India for technological exchanges with their counter parts and tap the huge potential of Indian market.

In order to endorse holistic escalation, the event also has concurrent shows for the allied sectors -- 3rd India Food Park Expo 2017, 9th India Foodex 2017 and 2nd SnackBev India 2017 to ensure improved commerce opportunities for the industry to grow up.
